Hello! I am an I-751 petitioner, me and my husband have a joint checking account, cashier filled out his name as a payer on the check for my petition? Is it ok?

it wouldn't matter who's name is the payer. I used a lawyer years ago and they use their own check to track when the check was cashed. They deposited my personal check into the law firms account and used a company check to pay for my application

out of curiosity, how are you going to track how the check is being cashed or not? Usually NOA takes 10 days or so, depending when they receive it and send it to your home, but personally it drives me nuts and know I use credit card last time for AOS to now exactly when it was charged and accepted.

Yeah this gives me anxiety, I will wait for the NOA I guess. For my AOS I did cashier's check but I don't remember was it mine or my husband's name on the check. My bank already withdrew money from the account so USCIS shouldn't have problem cashing it. I hope :energy:

My husband and I have a checking account that doesn’t have checks (bc we have no use for them and it saves us money on bank fees) so my immigration fees are always via a money order from the bank. 

 

Anyway, my point in this comment is all the money orders I have gotten have a phone number on them where you can call (it’s an automated system) to check the status of the check, so you will know when it was presented to a financial institution and honored.

 

If you kept a copy of the money order or receipt, look for a phone number.  (The one I have had the number listed as “for stop payments blah blah blah”, but there’s an option on there to check the status.

I just looked, no phone number :(  but I have a cashier's check...not money order :)

Your bank has an internal system that tells them whether or not a cashier's check has been presented back to them for payment. 

 

That probably isn't something you would have access to, but you could call them and inquire about your specific item. 

 

As for your original question, I agree with the others who said it doesn't matter who the payment is from.

 

Good luck!
