    Defendants' Attorney holding the payment

    Hello,

    I was rear-ended a few months ago and the insurance company lowballed me on the car valuation.

    I filed a small claims court case and the defendants' attorney (provided by the insurance company) showed up for trial. I got a judgment for car valuation + court fees + interest rate @ 6.25 % per annum.

    It has been a week since the judgment and the attorney just sent me a letter to sign a "Satisfaction Of Judgment" and mail it to her. She says that the check will not be mailed to me until she receives the signed "Satisfaction Of Judgment".

    Later on, she stated that a colleague might exchange it with me in the local court house, but, her email implies that I will not be paid any interest for this delay.

    Is that acceptable? Isn't payment considered to be made when I receive the check or when it is mailed to me?

    If she does not give me the interest, Can I just file a statement with the judge detailing what more I am owed? When I give my car title to her in the courthouse, how can I get proof that the other person has taken the title from me?

    I understand that the interest amount does not amount to much, but, I have been jerked around by this insurance company and want them to pay me what is rightfully owed.

    Any thoughts, please?


    Thanks
