Anchorage, AK – Sarah Palin’s son Track Palin, and his wife Britta, are headed to divorce court.
TMZ reports that Track Palin, the eldest of Sarah Palin’s two sons and oldest of five children, has filed divorce documents jointly with his wife in an Alaskan court. In accordance with Alaskan law, filing together is their way of saying that they’ve already settled property and custody issues including child support.
Court records show that Track Palin and his wife, Britta Hanson, filed for divorce on December 1. The court system website does not list attorneys for either party, reports The Miami Herald.
The ex-couple are parents to a 1-year-old daughter, Kyla. Track and Britta watched a 48-minute video about the impact of divorce on a child, but apparently it wasn’t enough to encourage them to work out their differences.
The couple married in May of 2011, clocking their failed marriage in at one year and seven months.
After the 9/11 attacks, Track Palin enlisted in the Army, where he is a reservist. He deployed for one year in Iraq. Back when mom Sarah was a GOP vice presidential candidate in 2008, she spoke at his deployment ceremony in Fairbanks, marking one of the few times she made it back to Alaska while she was on the campaign trail.
Track is a commercial fisherman and is planning on returning to college.
Sarah Palin has two sons, Track (b. 1989) and Trig (b. 2008). She has five children in total including Bristol (b. 1990), Willow (b. 1994), and Piper (b. 2001). She is also grandmother to 4-year-old Tripp (Bristol’s son with ex Levi Johnston) in addition to Kyla.
