New York Child Victims Act

The New York Child Victims Act makes a necessary change to long standing precedent in statutes of limitations in child sexual assault cases. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has made this Act one of his top initiatives for 2018-19, and after the Legislature voted to approve the legislation on Monday Jan 28th,2019, it now heads to the Governor’s desk for his signature.

The Child Victims Act will extend the statute of limitations on child sexual abuse crimes to the age of 28 in criminal cases and the age of 50 in civil cases, with a one year-window to bring civil claims for victims below that age limit.

For more information on the act and if you feel that a claim can be revived, contact us today.

What are the statute of limitations in a sexual abuse case?

Statute of Limitations in a sexual abuse case is the deadline by which a case has to be filed by, and the statute of limitations is different, in different states. In some states now it’s actually been revoked, in some states it depends on when the victim connected their abuse to their injuries. In some states it’s a very hard fast deadline, but it’s important to find out whether or not if your case is older, whether or not you can still file your case. Because even though there might be a statute of limitations, there may still be ways for us to help you and get justice.
