My abuse occurred a long time ago, how long do I have to bring my case?

The statute of limitations for abuse cases differs based on the legal theory which must be pursued, and can be effected by the particular facts of your cases.  If your abuse occurred while you were still a minor, Missouri law does provide for “tolling,” or extensions of the statute of limitations for a certain period of time.  It is important that you call an attorney right away to avoid any applicable deadlines for filing your case.
