Priest Sexual Abuse Settlement Programs and 

Bringing a Civil Claim

Don't Miss Deadlines

(IRCP and NY Child Victims Act) 

In New York State, beginning with the New York Archdiocese, the Catholic Church opened voluntary settlement programs in nearly all of the Dioceses across the state.  Most of the programs have closed but some of them are still accepting late filings.  Do not assume that because the deadline has passed that you will not be eligible to apply for a settlement program or for filing a legal claim in the Court.
