    Call up the claim rep and ask.

    Defense counsel usually holds the paperwork for submission until they get the checks in.  So until they get the check, the paperwork won't go to the judge for approval.  Usually 30 to 45 days.

    Is that 30-45 days from mediation or 30-45 days from when I signed all the paper work?

    From the day you signed the paperwork.

    Sorry to be a pest but the day of mediation my attorney said it would be 4-6 weeks till I get my check. I signed the papers at mediation that stated All medical stops as of today(the day of mediation) and I agree to the settlement and so on.

    A week ago I signed all the papers that needed to be notirized etc. So it would be an additional 30-45 days from that set of papers I signed?

    Another question. When the attorney gets the check and then writes a check out to me, does he mail that to me or do I have to go and get that? .....and how long does a check usually take to clear?

    Well, your attorney said 4-6 weeks from the mediation, and you sgned the settlement paperwork a week after mediation.  My estimate of 30-45 days after signing is about what your atty. told you.

    Checks typically take 3 days to clear if it's an instate check, 5 days if it's out of state.

    You can pick up the check at your atty's office if you say you want to pick up the check.

    Your atty should be able to tell you all of this....
