About New Jersey’s Catholic Diocese Compensation Fund

On November 19, 2018, the Archbishop of Newark announced the Archdiocese of Newark and the Dioceses of Camden, Trenton, Paterson and Metuchen will establish a victim compensation program. This program will provide compensation to victims of child sexual abuse by clergy and employees of the dioceses in New Jersey whose legal claims are barred by New Jersey's statute of limitations. New Jersey’s dioceses will also release the names of all credibly accused clergy in 2019.

What to Expect

The Catholic dioceses of New Jersey, like those in several other states, including Catholic dioceses in New York and Pennsylvania, have set up similar funds. In the past, dioceses have hired an outside attorney to review survivors’ claims and determine the amount of reparations available to each person. Dioceses have also allowed survivors to meet with Catholic officials as part of the process to share their stories. We have considerable experience working through this process with dioceses’ representatives and survivors.

Know All Your Options

You have other options if you do not want to enroll in the victim compensation program. The New Jersey legislature is considering passing a law that would allow victims of child sexual abuse to sue the Catholic church related to abuse that happened many years ago. Furthermore, several class action lawsuits have been filed related to sexual abuse in the Catholic church. Call our lawyers and learn about all your options.
