Hi! I will be the professional that will be helping you today. I look forward to providing you with information to help solve your problem.
I certainly understand your concern. Until the Judge signs the judgment and/or enters the order, it would not appear. Right now, there is only a pending matter in the court. It is not uncommon for parties to settle outside of court and it is something which is strongly encouraged. If you are going to pay the amount owed, which would resolve the case and make the issue moot, the attorney for the landlord could file a voluntarily dismissal with the court and the case would be closed. No judgment would be issued and the case would be dismissed. If you have the money, there is no reason to wait until the day of court, if you can pay now and resolve this. As such, you can contact the attorney this morning, advise him you want to pay the money owed and ask if once you tender him the certified check, if he will dismiss the case. There should be no reason that he should not, since it would only be a waste of time to appear in court if this has been resolved and would save his client money, for having to charge additional attorney fees.
