-Could you explain your situation a little more?Please explain exactly what happened so that I can determine if you have a cause of action.
How old are you?
DearCustomer- It sounds like your mother has a definite mental problem based on these facts. I'm surprised you haven't asked for a restraining order against her for all of this as that is what I would recommend. You can also file a libel or slander suit and a suit for intentional infliction of emotional distress.
You definitely have several causes of action you can allege in a civil suit plus, as I said above, you should get a restraining order filed against her. It appears you have several witnesses to corroborate your claims. I don't know what type of court hearing you are referring to where she doesn't show but if she fails to appear in court you can obtain a default judgment in any action.
