What is an order of satisfaction?

I sued my landlord for $2,200 in damages in small claims court. I was only awarded $575. I have received an order or satisfaction from the law firm that represented my landlord. The law firm states I have to sign the order of satisfaction or I they will ask the courts to intervene? Do I have to sign it? If I do sign it, what rights am I waiving?
