Hi,

I am just wondering if a personal check can be used to file I-751? Or do I have to buy a money-order? If money-order, can I get it from say, Western Union or Walmart? Thanks.

I used a check and had no problem. The good thing about use check is you can see when they cash your check and know your NOA 1 is on the way.

if your useing a personal check to remove conditions it's ok, just my opition it will be much better if you have a joint checking account and send a joint check,showing both of your names on the check,if not then ok, a money order is good, a bank check is good,it's better if you can trace it to see if it was cashed,with you personal check you can check your account balance an date cashed,don't forget to put your alien resigation number on the check,

thanks! Yes, we do have a joint account - so using our personal check (showing both our names on it) has added benefit

This isn't a requirement, we've never done this before however its required to type in that number on the I-751.
