In a lawsuit filed Monday, a Florida woman says she has been collecting child support since she was 12, but her parents refused to pay it.
The mother is seeking $2.4 million from her ex-husband, whose name has not been released, according to court documents.
She is also seeking unspecified damages for emotional distress and physical pain.
In court documents, the woman claims her father had her arrested and jailed after she had a child out of wedlock.
She says she was in and out of jail for about a year and that her father would have her jailed and charged with child abuse if she would have been married.
The lawsuit also alleges that her ex and her sister also abused her.
The woman is seeking damages for pain and suffering, emotional distress, and emotional distress to another person.
The family has been in mediation over custody issues for years.
The couple is married and has two young children.
