    Default Re: Is There a Statute of Limitations on Child Abuse

    There is, and it's rather complicated, with lots of exceptions if certain requirements are met, AND, it's subject in most cases to the laws that were in place at the time of the crime, as opposed to what the laws say today.

    If you're asking about criminal statutes of limitations, it typically doesn't start to count down until the victim turns 18. You can always contact police in the jurisdiction where it occurred and ask.

    If you're asking about the civil statute of limitations for suing for damages, it's even MORE complicated. You can start by checking out:

    but should still consult with an attorney well versed in personal injury cases of this type.
