My question involves child abuse or neglect in the State of: Florida
when I was 16 years old, I was punched in the face by my mothers ex-boyfriend. In retrospect, I realize now more than ever I should have called the police immediately.
But, there was some things going on where I thought if my mother had him in the house she would have gotten in trouble. He wasn't supposed to even be there, we have come to this conclusion. I'm now 19 years old (Soon to be 20) and now there's some big bad legal stuff going on. I need to know if it's too late to report the child abuse? I have a witness, infact I have 2, both of my sisters. One heard the commotion, and the other saw the aftermath. I had a shiner and I had to miss a complete week of school, and my nose was bleeding a lot.
Basically. Is it too late for me? If it's not, how long do I have left to report this?
