Question about using a money order for the I-751, we would like to send this tommorrow.

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

On the money order there is a From: and Pay to: section. I know that for the From: section I put my address. I also know that for the Pay to: section i put U.S. Department of Homeland Security. My Question is that under the Pay to: section, it asks for a address. What do I put there? Do I put the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's address? Do I put the USCIS Service centers address? Do I leave it blank? Also there is a portion at the bottom to write a "Memo:" should i Put "I-751 and Biometrics Fee"? Did anyone else use a money order?

For the memo line at the bottom of the money order I put : I-751 Application Fee then i put my wife's A#. Is that a good idea? And on the "From" part pf the money order do I put both me and my wifes name?

The address doesn't matter. The money order will be slammed into the bank quicker than you can say "Jack Robinson."


06-04-2007 = TSC stamps postal return-receipt for I-129f.

06-11-2007 = NOA1 date (unknown to me).

07-20-2007 = Phoned Immigration Officer; got WAC#; where's NOA1?

09-25-2007 = Touch (first-ever).

09-28-2007 = NOA1, 23 days after their 45-day promise to send it (grrrr).

10-20 & 11-14-2007 = Phoned ImmOffs; "still pending."

12-11-2007 = 180 days; file is "between workstations, may be early Jan."; touches 12/11 & 12/12.

12-18-2007 = Call; file is with Division 9 ofcr. (bckgrnd check); e-prompt to shake it; touch.

12-19-2007 = NOA2 by e-mail & web, dated 12-18-07 (187 days; 201 per VJ); in mail 12/24/07.

01-09-2008 = File from USCIS to NVC, 1-4-08; NVC creates file, 1/15/08; to consulate 1/16/08.

01-23-2008 = Consulate gets file; outdated Packet 4 mailed to fiancee 1/27/08; rec'd 3/3/08.

04-29-2008 = Fiancee's 4-min. consular interview, 8:30 a.m.; much evidence brought but not allowed to be presented (consul: "More proof! Second interview! Bring your fiance!").

05-05-2008 = Infuriating $12 call to non-English-speaking consulate appointment-setter.

05-06-2008 = Better $12 call to English-speaker; "joint" interview date 6/30/08 (my selection).

06-30-2008 = Stokes Interrogations w/Ecuadorian (not USC); "wait 2 weeks; we'll mail her."

07-2008 = Daily calls to DOS: "currently processing"; 8/05 = Phoned consulate, got Section Chief; wrote him.

08-07-08 = E-mail from consulate, promising to issue visa "as soon as we get her passport" (on 8/12, per DHL).

Lol, did you see my last question before your post, id like to get your opinion on that? The question im reffering to is: For the memo line at the bottom of the money order I put : "I-751 Application Fee" then i put my wife's A#. Is that a good idea?

Also just to make sure i understood you right, there dosnt need to be a address put down for the address section for the Pay to section on the money order? I know the U.S. Department of Homeland Security is what goes in the Pay to section.

Also for were it asks our address on the money order should i put both me and my wifes name then our address?

The most important thing is who it's made out to. They will cash it and I'm sure they'll know what it's for. The only problem is an incorrect amount and I'm sure that's not the case here, so I'll say don't stress it too much..;)

They don't care WHO the check comes from. If it is attached to her application it will go under application. This is the fastest thing they do. If you were writing a check from your bank account you would be able to see that check cashed almost immediately and you'd have the peace of mind knowing they received it and it made it to someone's hands. Take a look at the timeline in my signature for ROC when you can see how fast that check got cashed!

Keep in mind this is your wife's application, not yours. So HER information is what is important. The A# will give them the reference they need and it will be attached to her application.
