Hi there, these private parking companies cannot issue fines, the ticket and fees charged are for breach of contract. They can only enforce these by taking the matter to court - which is what they are doing. If she pays the sum straight away then she will not have a CCJ.
Usually with private company fines I would simply recommend you ignore their correspondence as they will not proceed to court with this. However, they are taking more and more to court now and the last thing you want is a cci.
I would only pay if they genuinely have issued a court claim. Northampton is the bulk court centre. There should be a court number on the document and it should be a particulars of claim. If it is not then it is a try-on from them. You need to check that it is genuinely a court summons. This is key. Happy to discuss but please rate positive.
