New York’s Child Victims Act

Unfortunately, sexual abuse is common, and while exact figures aren’t known because many cases go unreported, it is estimated that 10% of adolescents are subject to unwanted sexual contact. Victims often don’t report abuse because they fear retaliation, they justify their abuser's actions, or they don’t think the abuse is significant.

In the past, when the victim was ready to hold their abuser accountable, the statute of limitations for filing a claim had lapsed. However, in February of 2019, New York passed the Child Victims Act, extending the deadline for initiating a claim. Before, victims had until they were 23 years old to file a lawsuit against their abuser; now, they are able to pursue a civil case until they are 55 years of age. Additionally, beginning in August of 2019, and continuing for a period of 1 year until August 2021, the statute of limitations will be suspended, allowing victims to file claims against child sexual abusers regardless of how far in the past the acts occurred.

Perpetrators of childhood sexual abuse may include:

  • The church/religious officials
  • Schools/educators
  • Youth organizations/instructors
  • Other individuals (family members, friends, neighbors, etc.)
