When do I have to decide to file a civil case in New York?


Unfortunately there’s a very short window of time for survivors in the state of New York to decide whether or not they want to take advantage of the Child Victims Act. The deadline for survivors no matter when they were abused in the state of New York is August 13, 2020. Now you don’t want to wait till the last minute to make that decision so I highly suggest that you do your due diligence now. Talk to a therapist, talk to an attorney, talk to a trusted friend because that window will close very quickly and once it’s closed there may not be that chance again to expose predators and keep children safe from abuse.
