We're prepping our I-130 and have to include payment for filling, via DCF Frankfurt. We don't have the option to get a US money order as we are both not in the States, is there another way?

Sending a check isn't possible and I read that Credit Cards aren't accepted anymore for this location, but I'm not sure.

 I tried calling them, but everything is automated and refers to the website. I can't seem to find the answers on the site though, so Im hopeful someone has had experience with Frankfurt office.

I thought DCF had to be filed in person?

That isn't available at all locations. Frankfurt only seems to accept mailed in petitions.

I read it.  We did DCF but not in Frankfurt and mailing the petition in wasn't an option - LOL.  They wanted to eyeball me I guess and they wanted cash at the counter.

My suggestion is to email or call ACS (Citizen Services).  They're generally very helpful and can at least tell you how payments for services are expected at that location.

Based on what they say here you probably need to obtain fee payment that is compatible with the US banking system. 

My suggestion:  https://www.usps.com/international/money-transfers.htm

There are probably a hundred more ways to do it but you can do this in USD and pay for it several different ways.
