If you are a middle-aged person and you are now coming to grips with the reality of having been abused as a child, and you don’t know where to turn, you should first and foremost try to get psychological help.
You need to see a therapist. You need to see a counselor.

I can almost guarantee you that the lawyer will know of experts in the field in your area and will be able to guide you to somebody, a therapist that can help. The lawyer can be of help as well.
