              RENDERED FOR PHYSICALLY, SEXUALLY, OR EMOTIONALLY ABUSING 
              A CHILD.

    (a) Garnishment Authority.--Section 1408 of title 10, United States 
Code, is amended by adding at the end the following new subsection:
    ``(l) Garnishment to Satisfy a Judgment Rendered for Physically, 
Sexually, or Emotionally Abusing a Child.--(1) Any payment of retired 
pay that would otherwise be made to a member shall be paid (in whole or 
in part) by the Secretary concerned to another person if and to the 
extent expressly provided for in the terms of a child abuse garnishment 
order.
    ``(2) In this section, the term `court order' includes a child 
abuse garnishment order.
    ``(3) In this subsection, the term `child abuse garnishment order' 
means a final decree issued by a court that--
            ``(A) is issued in accordance with the laws of the 
        jurisdiction of that court; and
            ``(B) provides in the nature of garnishment for the

accompanied by other actionable wrongdoing, such as sexual exploitation 
or gross negligence.
    ``(5) If the Secretary concerned is served with more than one court 
order with respect to the retired pay of a member, the disposable 
retired pay of the member shall be available to satisfy such court 
orders on a first-come, first-served basis, with any such process being 
satisfied out of such moneys as remain after the satisfaction of all 
such processes which have been previously served''.
    (b) Effective Date.--Subsection (l) of section 1408 of title 10,
