Thank you. Form 202 is stating that the vehicle owner has been paid for all damages arising out of a car accident, and that they're waiving any right to sue or seek additional money in the future. Form 230 says that the driver who caused the accident agrees to make payments, but not that all payments have been received. When two people sign a Form 230, if payments are missed, the injured driver still has the right to bring a lawsuit to recover any money that wasn't paid. Once the final payment is made, the other driver agrees not to sue. So, basically, it comes down to whether the driver who caused the accident is able to pay the other driver all at once or needs time to make payments.
