I am eighteen now and my father was substantiated for mental and emotional abuse on me. He is a cop and the court didn't seem to care. I would like to report it myself this time
Statutes of limitations are tricky in this area and more so because you just became an adult. Seek the assistance of a personal injury lawyer asap. They may review the facts with you and determine if you have a viable case.
It depends on what the mental and emotional abuse consisted of. Speak to local family or personal injury lawyer.
