Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston

Strike Custody Deal

8/14/2010 10:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned ... Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston have reached a settlement in their custody case.

0803_bristol_levi_Getty_EX
Under the deal, filed with an Alaska Superior Court, Bristol will get primary physical custody of Tripp.  Levi will have visitation, between 9:00 AM and 4:00 PM on Saturdays and 12:00 PM and 6:00 PM on Wednesdays.

Levi has to pay Bristol child support.  The amount isn't stated, but the agreement says the calculation is based on earnings of $72,000 a year.

And get this ... Under the agreement filed with the court, the parties agree not to "speak badly about the other parent in front of the child ... or allow anyone else to speak badly about the other parent or members of their family in front of the child."

And it goes on ... "The parties agree that they shall not allow the child to visit with, or interact with, any family member who publicly ... or in front of the child, criticizes the other parent or the other parent's family."

Why were these conditions put in a custody dispute? The only thing I saw that related to custody was very limited with child support being paid by Levi and he'll get to spend thirteen hours a week with his son. What will happen if either of them break this agreement, will they lose their right to see the baby? This was as bad as a bill the republicans threw a bunch of garbage in.

Bristol should have a kid with Dennis Rodman next time if she thinks she's not getting enough child support money.

Levi is doing the same thing Sarah is doing. Getting the money while they can. Anybody who follows either one is an idiot but like they say there is a fool born everyday. So all you suckers out there it doesn't matter which line you are in you are a still a fool. Even the mama bears...A little catch phrase and you all get in line LOL

Those are pretty standard terms in a parenting agreement.

who cares about what the parents do, it should be all about their child.

I have ALWAYS encouraged the moms, dads & grandparents I work with to do the same thing. Mary Ann LaFasia, a social worker told me the same thing in 1976, "Don't ever say anything negative about your kids' other parent." Best advice, and some I've passed on more than just about any other thing I've learned over the years.

I don't see why such a big deal is being made about Levi's posing nude, when a VERY poplular Senator, newly elected, did the same thing for the same reason.....MONEY! Levi probably would make a great mayor, because he will do it full time, something never done by his baby's grandmother when she had the job as well as being governor! Her husband sat in the governor's seat and did the job more than half the time his wife did! DUH! The boy needs the money to pay child support. The conditions of not speaking against a former partner in custody rules is not uncommon.It is more standard. As far as relatives speaking against one another, we all know why that was added!

All this should be normal behavior. Should not need to say it! Grow up, brats. That includes you, Sarah Palin.

Hmmmm    

Bristol needs to get a clue and quit chasing a man who obviously doesn't give a damn about her anymore. If she wasn't Sarah Palins daughter he wouldn't have the time of day for her. His fame waned so he interacted with her to get back into the limelight. I think Bristol is a nice girl but she has some growing up to do. She needs to find a real man, not some punk who never even graduated high school and thinks hes destined to become a Superstar because he knocked up a Governor's kid once.

13 hours a week visitation? He either presented an awful case, didn't care or she had a lot negative evidence against him.

I think the ultimate revenge for Levi would be to take a paternity test to see if Tripped is his son. Rumor has it that both Bristol and Willow would sleep with anyone in Wasilla and that Willow is the mom of Trigger. While tomcats away, the kittens will play. Never had parents there to supervise them--Piper will grow up just as wild.

Can the child decern any part of a conversation other than the tone in which a comment might be delivered?
