We study the weak decays of and into D-wave heavy–light mesons, including () and () states. The weak decay hadronic matrix elements are obtained based on the instantaneous Bethe–Salpeter method. The branching ratios for the decays are , , and , respectively. For the semi-electronic decays of to , , and , the corresponding branching ratios are , , and , respectively. The branching ratios of the semi-electronic decays of to D-wave D mesons are in the order of . We also obtained the forward–backward asymmetry, angular spectra, and lepton momentum spectra. In particular the distribution of decay widths for the states and varying along with mixing angle are presented.
