An Alaskan judge ordered Levi Johnston to pay $18,500 in back child support for his 13-month-old son, Tripp, on Thursday.

Johnston, 19, will also pay $1,688.42 in child support to ex fiancee Bristol Palin, TMZ.com reports.

"Bristol is pleased with the court rulings today and looks forward to resolving the remaining issues with Levi," Palin's lawyer, Thomas Van Flein, told TMZ.

Palin, 19, was present in court while Johnson, who most recently posed semi-nude in Playgirl, was a  no-show.

According to court documents, Palin argued that Johnston earned $105,000 in 2009 -- but only paid her $4,400.

"I have received limited and sporadic financial assistance from Levi," she said in a sworn statement. Johnson's manager, Tank Jones, argued that he had paid more than $10,000.

The couple announced their split last March.
