Default Quick question - money orders

For payment of the I-485 and I-130 can I just use money orders from the grocery store (hope so because that's what I got!) or do they have to be from the bank/post office?

They prefer personal checks. Far better for you as well as you can then track them being cashed.

The instructions should tell you want can be used as payment.

A money order is the same whether you get it at a bank or a grocery store. As long as you comply with the payment requirements at www.uscis.gov, you're fine.
