I finally contacted the plaintiffs attorney. He told me they accepted my offer, And said so in an email as well. Do I need any more proof to cover myself before I pay the settlement amount?
Good evening. You ideally want an agreement signed by both sides which contains the settlement amount, and that once it is paid, that the case is over. If they sued, that they will discontinue the lawsuit. If they have a judgment, that they will mark it satisfied. The e-mail is helpful but an agreement would be preferable in this situation. The lawyer should have it in his computer and simply has to change names and numbers.
