Would I be able to commit my controlling mother? I am over the age of 18. She has threatened my sister and father with harm for their refusal to attend Catholic Mass and pray the rosary. She previously was taking psychiatric medication (benzodiazepine and antidepressant) for treatment of PTSD and Major Depression. Does she meet the commitment criteria?

Pressuring someone to attend church is not unusual, and hardly a basis for commitment. You have no standing in the matter. Treated mental conditions are being treated, and so no basis for commitment. If you are in conflict, you are of an age when you can move out and move on.
We do not have a client/attorney relationship until you make an appointment, we discuss your case face to face, I accept a retainer, and we explictly agree to enter into representation.
