Court personnel don't necessarily give correct information over the phone. Lawyers are not perfect either, but your lawyer is responsible to you and is more likely to be giving you correct information. What kind of check are you asking about, by the way?

The check is a settlement check


I would contact the court and confirm that the date the check was processed.
