My mother-in-law signed a contract for some asthetic work to be done on her house. She later found out that the "contractor" is not licensed. The work was very shoddy. Is the contract binding?

It may or may not be and even if it is binding, she may still have recourse. The contractor may not need to be licensed if the job was under a certain amount. She should consult with a real estate or litigation attorney in her area.
