When it says a US bank check or a money order I seem to believe that when we 1st filed for AOS we got a bankers check made up, can I not pay the fee by a regular checking account check in both our names is that acceptable please anyone. :dance:

It states on form cheque or money order. I just sent them a regular bank cheque.


Canadians Visiting the USA while undergoing the visa process, my free advice:

1) Always tell the TRUTH. never lie to the POE officer

2) Be confident in ur replies

3) keep ur response short and to the point, don't tell ur life story!!

4) look the POE officer in the eye when speaking to them. They are looking for people lieing and have been trained to find them!

5) Pack light! No job resumes with you

6) Bring ties to Canada (letter from employer when ur expected back at work, lease, etc etc)

7) Always be polite, being rude isn't going to get ya anywhere, and could make things worse!!

8) Have a plan in case u do get denied (be polite) It wont harm ur visa application if ur denied,that is if ur polite and didn't lie! Refer to #1

Paying Fees:

PLEASE DO NOT SEND CASH OR TRAVELERS CHECKS. The Service Center will accept money orders, personal checks, and cashiers checks for payment of fees. The Service Center cannot deposit cash or travelers checks. Be sure checks are signed and correctly dated.

Place the check on top of the application, securely fastened in the upper left corner. If more than one application is filed, submit a separate check for each. This will avoid the necessity of returning ALL applications should just one be found to be unacceptable. Place all the checks on the top application.

I send a personal check, that way I can easily track if and when it gets cashed.

They will accept your "personal" check, whether it has both your names on it or not. If the account is only in one name, you need to print your spouses name, on the note line.

ha ha, those of you who know me a little know that I usually don't worry over a thing like this--I think the Big Picture is what counts (weird, because I'm very detail oriented). Anyway, being my usual cheapskate self, I wanted to use up the checks I had leftover before ordering new ones --I mean, why waste money, right?

The thing is, I only write about 2 checks a month anymore, so it took FOREVER to get rid of the checks w/just my name on them. When we sent in the I-751 (with a personal check) I had one of those VJ moments when I wondered 'what will they think!? Just my name on the account!'

Happy to report that, just like MarcoAmer says, it doesn't matter, just include the name and A# on the face of the check. :)

PS: we finally got checks with both names printed on them earlier this year.. after 4 years of marriage!

Hehe... I guess you don't move around the way we do! We're on our third set of checks and we've only been married two years and three months.

In any case, we opened a new joint account when we got married, neither of us got added to the other's existing account.
