If he will not provide that to you and DFAS won't (and they don't sound like they will), you need a court order that specifically states you have to be given that information. Without it, DFAS doesn't have to provide it and this is probably what they mean when they say that you don't have a court order. You don't have a court order requiring them to give you documentation of his pay and you need that, individually.
So, you'd need to file a motion with the court that ordered your original divorce, requesting that he be required to provide that documentation or that DFAS be required to give it, so that you can determine if you are being paid correctly. You'll have to allege, in that complaint, the reasons that you believe you are not getting the correct amount.
