Thank you for trusting your question to JA today. I am a licensed attorney with over a decade of law practice and over 20 years of experience in the legal field. I’m happy to be of assistance. (The system will automatically generate a phone call request to you. Unless I specifically state, during our discussion, that a phone call is possible, I intend to just use this chat format as I am not in a position to accept a phone call).

You need to submit the decree and QDRO to DFAS so that it is on record and they can pay you directly. You have to fill out a DD Form 2293, which is on the page below, along with directions on how to apply for payments.
