According to the report, the papers, which were filed on Friday, “uses initials rather than full names, but identifies the couple’s marriage date and the birth date of their only child who is a minor, Trig Palin. The filing asks for joint legal custody of the child.”
The report adds:
Anchorage attorney Kimberlee Colbo is representing Todd Palin in the divorce. In a filing, Colbo said she would ask the court to designate the divorce confidential as it moves forward.
Colbo did not immediately respond Monday to a request for comment from Todd Palin.
