Sarah Palin's oldest daughter, Bristol, is seeking child support from the young man who fathered her 1-year-old son.

A court document filed Thursday says Bristol Palin is seeking $1,750 a month from Levi Johnston. It says Bristol is providing nearly 100 percent of Tripp's care, and that Johnston has paid only $4,400 in more than a year.

Johnston lawyer Rex Butler says on several occasions his client wanted to give Bristol money for the baby's care, requesting that she bring Tripp with her, but she was a no-show.
