Levi Johnston owes more than $38,000 in unpaid child support to Bristol Palin
Levi Johnston
owes more than $38,000 in unpaid child support to Bristol Palin -- according to team Bristol.

Bristol's lawyer tells TMZ, Levi hasn't made a child support payment for the ex-couple's son Tripp since June 2010 ... 22 months ago.

According to court records, Levi is required to pay $1,750 a month -- which means his outstanding balance is $38,500.

As for why Bristol hasn't attempted to enforce the order -- via wage garnishment or otherwise -- Bristol's attorney tells us, "We forbore pursuing child support collection in the (perhaps naive) hope that Mr. Johnston would do what men are supposed to do and pay his support obligation voluntarily."

The lawyer adds, "We were also concerned that garnishment or other aggressive collection efforts could exacerbate an already strained relationship" ... no kidding.

We're told Bristol is still holding out hope that Levi will pay. So far, no word back from Levi's camp.

Levi may not be the heavy in this case. The media is heavily pro-Bristol and Levi is just another guy on the planet.

Levi was accused of using their son Tripp to make money and promote himself. It's all a bit strange, when the person who made the accusations, Bristol, has invited the cameras into her private life - AGAIN- with the same son - AGAIN - in a house she's going to share with (this time) her boyfriend... Hey Bristol: "Life's A Tripp!"

I am not defending Levi Johnson,but how is a kid expected to pay 1750.00 a month in child support? Not that it is an excuse for not paying any child support,but is he allowed to see the baby at all? I am pretty sure Sarah Palin makes it impossible for him to see the baby.

Bullsh*t on her being the 'bigger person' and not pursuing collections of the support. Levi must have some major dirt she knows he'll reveal if she drags him into court.

Deadbeat (PUNK) Hate will not allow his children to love him. If he isn't paying he isn't involved. "Who will trust him going forward". Girls are dumb that way, Women aren't.
