Representing Orlando, Tampa, Miami and Nearby Areas of Florida

House Bill 525 was signed into law this week by Florida’s Governor. This new law eliminates all statutes of limitations time limits on filing criminal or civil suits for sexual abuse of children who were under the age of 16 when they were abused. Now, anyone who was abused as a child of 15 or younger can file suit no matter how much time passes before they have the ability or willingness to prosecute their abuser.
