Palin, 25, recently filed a motion asking a judge to get Johnston, 25, to pay up roughly $66,000 in back child support payments. But according to new court documents filed on February 11, a judge denied her motion.
The court documents state that the judge denied her “motion for collection of past due child support, insofar as that motion relies on the interim support order,” explaining “because the order was an interim order, it no longer was in effect once the case was dismissed.”
The main issue is that their custody case was dismissed in September 2012 for lack of prosecution. At that time, the judge wrote in the new documents, the couple’s initial child support agreement became invalid, so Palin can’t claim Johnston hasn’t met those obligations.
After the dismissal, Palin didn’t file a motion for an interim support order again until August 2014. And the couple finally settled the case in December 2015.
So this does not mean that Levi does not owe back child support. However it DOES mean that what he owes, based on the new child custody agreement and accurate financial information, will be a fraction of what has been claimed by Bristol for these last five years or so.
I think at one point they were claiming it was up to $82,000, or something ridiculous like that.
I'm trying to decide who is having the worst 2016, Jeb Bush or the Palin family?
