If there is no court order or agreement, it is expected that service members would offer adequate financial support to family members. This is mentioned in Para. 3.2.1 in Air Force Instruction 36-2906. The Air Force does not stipulate the level of support. It leaves this decision to the agreement of the parties or if the parties do not agree, then up to the civilian courts.
Support is inclusive of cash payments as well as in-kind payments like paying bills, purchasing groceries etc. Even a commander cannot define what can be termed as an adequate level of support.
