Can I Cash This Check?

September 30th, 2020 at 11:30 pm

When my brother and I was going through it, I wasn’t happy with my original attorney, so I sought another one. I thought I had given her a deposit, to hold. $4,000. But I had no record.

Long story short, I’d asked about the money but the attorney said she didn’t have one. Today out of the blue, she called and mentioned she was cleaning her office and found an envelope with my name on it and a note marked to hold. Low and behold it is the check. She said she thought it was strange because normally the funds would go into the trust account. She’s returning to me. It’s a cashier check, I no longer bank with the bank that issued it, my question is, will I be able to cash it?

If I’m able to cash it, the money is going straight to my savings account. My goal is to save 6 month of my take home pay. I’ll continue to tackle my student loans the same as I am currently doing.

Other news, I paid another $320 on my student loans. My total paid for the month I believe is $3,000, I’ll calculate this weekend. I know that I’m just under $3k for my first loan.

    Yes, you can cash the check at your bank. It doesn’t need to be cashed at the bank that issued it.

    Is the check payable to you? If not,since it’s a cashiers check it may be a little trickier since you don’t bank at the issuing bank. Different banks may handle this slightly different so I’d check with your bank. Ultimately you will get your money, it may just take a few extra steps.

    Good point TR, I assumed it was payable to Amber.

    Thanks everyone. I can’t remember if the check was made payable to me or the firm. She’ll be returning the check by mail.
