In a military divorce, each branch of the military has its own policy regarding payment of temporary child and/or spousal support in the absence of a court order. Calculating correct amounts of support depends on accurate analysis of the leave and earnings statement. If necessary, the Department of Finance and Accounting Service (DFAS), will enforce state orders through wage garnishment.
