Levi Johnston was recently ordered to pay an extra $3500 in back child support to his baby mama, Bristol Palin. And while the 19-year-old will try to comply with the judge’s order, he’s not happy about having to pay so much, his lawyer Rex Butler told

“Levi promptly paid what the court ordered…he does not agree with the amount and will seek reconsideration of the court’s order,”  Butler, who calls himself “Team Levi,” told exclusively. “If he prevails, he will receive a credit…he will obviously have to work hard to generate the income necessary to support the court’s order, but he’d rather pay and fight than be in contempt of the court’s order.”

Levi is already working to try and pay what he owes. A Playgirl rep told exclusively that he and Levi recently shot an episode of Kathy Griffin’s reality show My Life On The D List in Alaska.

As reported, a judge raised the amount of child support that Levi must pay from $18,000 to $21,561.12. Bristol’s attorney told, “We are hopeful that Levi will support his child and, based on his counsel’s on record promises made last week, expect those promises to be kept in due course.”
