              The Request for Order is GRANTED in all respects except for the request for attorney fees and costs which is DENIED.  The parties shall pay their own attorney fees and costs.  For clarification, this order is not enforceable against the military retirement administrator as this court does not have jurisdiction to order direct payment from the military pension administrator to the moving party.  [See 10 USC § 1408(d)(2)]  However, this court has jurisdiction to award a community property interest in the military pension to the moving party enforceable against the member upon proof.  [IRMO Beltran (1986) 183 Cal.App. 3d 292, 298].  Proof having been made to the satisfaction of this court, it is so ordered.  The moving party shall prepare the order of the court and submit it for signature no later than June 1, 2015.

    Lammam v. Lammam SFL-53704
