So we are about to mail out the application package for my wife's I-751 and was wondering who should sign the money order for the fees?  Would it be ok if I, the US citizen, sign it or would it be a better idea if she signed the money order? Does it make a difference to them?

I don't think it will matter since the MO is already a 3rd party (bank/CU/whatever). If you wan to play it safe, use the petitioner's name. 

 

But you might want to consider paying with check. It will be easier to verify/prove you paid. You'll also be able to see it hit your account and you can get a copy of the cashed check if you need to. 

 

It took about 5 days after I got the confirmation text from USCIS for the check to clear my account.

Doesn't matter who signs, but a personal check is easier to track......

It does not matter.

Just make sure that you make it out to DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY and you make it out for the appropriate fees = Filing fee + Biometric fee

 

Depending on where you go, they have a $500 limit on money order maximum so you will need more than one money order made out and signed (this too is totally fine....I had two!) Best to use an envelope, place the money orders inside them and include them with your packet by placing it on top of all your other paperwork so that is the first thing they get when they open your application package.

Thanks for all the replies. I went ahead and signed it myself. I didn't think it would matter just as long as they got it and it was the right amount. I made sure I filled it out right and I know the location I'm sending it to. Thanks again.
