A law and ethics question...

I am writing this for a friend, not myself personally.

My friend is in college and graduating in May, working several jobs, has so much out in student loans... and recently found out that her parents are cosigning her name on loans without her permission. They also stole her sister's credit cards which caused her to go bankrupt. Also, the family has filed her taxes for her and taken all of her income.

She is Chinese-Jamaican and says that this is in their culture-- that children support their parents, and is afraid by saying or doing anything, she may be disowned by them and other extended family as well.

Should she try to bring this case to court?
