My divorce decree states, "Former Spouse will receive alimonyView more military law questions
My divorce decree states, "Former Spouse will receive alimony until such time as the service member retires and then the Former Spouse will be entitled to her portion of the retirement pay." There is no formula or dollar amount associated and DFAS will not accept this as a viable order because of the lack of stipulation on an amount. As the retiring service member, what should my actions be? I understand what the USFSPA states, but the courts did not define retirement amount.
