Federal Civil Service Divorce - Who Pays the Former Spouse Survivor Annuity Premium?

In a Federal Civil Service divorce, OPM permits the court to order that the Former Spouse Survivor Annuity premium shall be paid from the retirement annuity of either the Employee or Former Spouse.  If the court order is silent on the subject, OPM will deduct the premium from the Employee's share of the retirement annuity.  Depending on the level of Former Spouse Survivor Annuity coverage ordered, the premium can be as high as 10% of the Employee's aggregate retirement annuity.  So, who pays the premium is not a trivial matter.
