Were You Sexually Abused in New Jersey, Even Decades Ago?
You May Still Be Eligible for Compensation.
New “Window of Opportunity” laws in New Jersey and several other states allow you to get compensation from your abuser, and the organisations that enabled them, no matter your age or how long ago the abuse occurred. The law gives all survivors two years to seek justice, even if they were previously ineligible.

Expanding the Rights of Sexual Abuse Survivors
Under New Jersey’s new law, the rights of child victims of sex abuse have been expanded to include:
- Beginning December 1, 2019, a two-year "window of opportunity" for VICTIMS OF ANY AGE to file civil claims against their abusers and the institutions that covered up the abuse, no matter how long ago the abuse took place. DON'T MISS THIS WINDOW.
- A right to file civil lawsuits against their abuser and the organization that protected them up to age 55 or 7 years from the discovery of the abuse, whichever is later.
- Extending the civil statute of limitations for adult sexual assault victims to 7 years from the offense or 7 years from the discovery of the abuse, whichever is later.
