Is the check made out to just you? What are you being reimbursed for?

My son had cancer and we have gotten many checks sent to us and usual the office tells us it's for them but this check no one has said anything was owed
Criminal Lawyer: Zoey_ JD, JustAnswer Criminal Law Mentor replied 1 year ago

If it's made out to you, there's no legal reason it can't be cashed. If it's supposed to go a creditor, you'll be told that and would be expected to pay it.

Will it be a matter of collections or court to get the funds owed if I did in fact owe that?
Criminal Lawyer: Zoey_ JD, JustAnswer Criminal Law Mentor replied 1 year ago

Collections first. Then court.
