Can my mom take her to court?
And that $1 per month thing is baloney. It isn't going to fly.
By the way, just serving auntie with a summons and complaint might scare her into paying up or making some sort of written agreement for appropriate monthly payments. And I wouldn't let auntie skate on even something like that without cash up front.
Getting a judgment against auntie will allow Mom to garnish paychecks, levy bank accounts, file a judgment lien on property, and otherwise make life pretty unpleasant for auntie.
And it isn't likely that auntie will pay a lawyer 200 to 300 per hour to defend her in a 2400 lawsuit.
If I were Mom I'd would file in a heartbeat.
