Hi,

My name is ***** ***** I'd be happy to answer your questions today. I'm sorry to hear that this happened.
I apologize, but legal experts are not able to call you. Live phone calls in the legal categories, unlike in other sections of JustAnswer, are considered the practice of law, which is forbidden by state laws. However, I'm happy to provide answers to your questions here.
The statute of limitations in California for child sexual abuse is unfortunately when the victim turns 25 years old. Cal. Code Civ. P., Section 340.1. The statute may be extended if your daughter has psychological issues that she has only recently realized were related to that abuse. In that case, she has 3 years from the date she discovered the psychological, but is completely cut off from filing suit on her 26th birthday.
The criminal statute of limitations is longer. The district attorney can press criminal charges at any time up until your daughter's 40th birthday. So she can still report the incident to police and ask them to investigate.
It's important that you are 100% satisfied with my courtesy and professionalism. Thank you.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
