Can we sue for identity theft?

Alright well heres the story. My fiance mother has ran up 6 credit cards in his name. And 1 utility. It totals up to over 5,000 dollars. Well we tried working with her and asked her to take care of it. She said she did. Then today a lawyer called us because of one of the credit cards. So we got a credit report done and that is what we found out. Now we are pressing charges against her. We where also wondering if we could sue? How do we go about that? And how much money does a identity theft cases normally run between thanks.
