New York Child Victims Act , Sue abusers till the age of 55

Postby Copy_Cat » Tue Mar 12, 2019 6:03 pm

The current statute of limitations in sex abuse cases in New York allows childhood victims of abuse until their 23rd birthday to sue their abusers or the institution that employed their abuser. Under the Child Victims Act, the age will change to 55.

This is new. I won't be back to reply to this topic, I just wanted to inform more people of this change for obvious reasons as a victim of child abuse, their will be more payback against abusers if more people that know about this.
I survived psychiatry.

That is about time. Many of the deeply abused people here only start to deal with it in there late 30s onwards. To many of us it was our life and we believed we were to blame. The awareness of what was done to us does not dawn until much later.Up to 23 we are just trying to bury it deep and make a go at living.
Thank you for this update.
