Bristol Palin Seeks Interim Child Support from Levi Johnston

It was reported earlier this week that Bristol Palin filed a Motion for Interim Child Support in the Alaska Superior Court. According to Alaska law, the non-custodial parent is obligated to provide child support up to 20% of the non-custodial parent’s adjusted annual income (up to an annual income of $105,000). Bristol Palin is demanding that Levi Johnston pay her $1,750 per month in child support, retroactive to the birth of their son, Tripp, who was born on December 27, 2008. According to court documents filed, Bristol contends that Levi has pulled in “in excess of $105,000 in 2009 through various media interviews and modeling related activities.”

Unlike Alaskan law, California law does not mandate a set percentage of payment of child support based upon the non-custodial parent’s adjusted annual income alone. In fact, California utilizes a Dissomaster program for the determination of child support. Factors such as the non-custodial parent’s timeshare, income, deductible expenses and other variables contribute to the determination of child support. The custodial parent’s income and other factors are also taken into consideration in the determination of child support.
