Mom will need to file a Form I-90 application for a new green card bearing her new, changed name. The fee is $365 and a fee of $85 for "bio-metrics" (fingerprinting) will also be required. USCIS is currently taking 6-7 months to process I-90s.
Mom can file a Form I-912 Request For Fee Waiver as well. USCIS may or may not approve it. You have to understand that USCIS is a "fee driven" agency which simply abhors approving fee waivers.

I agree with Mr. Behar. If your mother is eligible to naturalize to a U.S. citizen now (or soon) she can wait and change her name when she files form n-400 and tackle both tasks at once.
The court order tell her that she now can only use her new legal name and not the old one. The form is I90 and the timing is as soon as possible.
