Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
You need to have her give you her promise to pay in writing first off. As far as interest, the current post judgment interest rate in PA is 6% per year from the date of the judgment. To calculate the post judgment interest you can use a free calculator at https://www.judgmentmarketplace.com/tools/calculator. You only need to enter the judgment amount and date of judgment and select your jurisdiction and it will make the calculations for you.
