Ok I notice that the USCIS accepts Money orders and checks. Do they accept cashier's checks?

I JUST changed my account name on my bank (was a little overzealous about want my new name) and do not have new checks with my new last name. I don't want anything bouncing back if I write a check with my maiden name OR if the USCIS see my maiden name all over my paperwork but my new checks (& account) say my married name.

I am assuming that Cashiers checks would solve that....but does the USCIS accept them?

I used cashiers checks a month ago, and I didn't have any problem!! The bad thing is that you don't know when they cash the check...but if you don't care about that, use it!! you won't have any problem!!
