Yes, unfortunately. However, the bright side is that she can sue all day long in PA. However, how is she going to collect? There is no wage garnishment and if you have no assets, collection is going to be difficult.

BUT, this is your mama. What a lousy way to treat your mama. She bore you. She lent you her name and her credit by agreeing to co-sign. And how do you repay her? You default on the loan and trash her credit. She even went so far to pay off the debt. You need to start repaying the debt now. Apologize for being such a jerk, send her flowers and work out a payment arrangement (get it in writing) and start paying her back NOW before she sues.
