Usually, if both of you go to the bank the other one can sign over the cheque so the one person can deposit it.

@Elarissa: ditto.  sign it over to one or the other @ the bank.  It’ll work that way.  (But you have to have your name changed still, since you’re still Mrs original name and aren’t the name on the checks.

We got some checks made out to the both of us at our engagement party.  He just deposited into his account at an atm…. no problems.

I was able to deposit all the Mr & Mrs checks into our banks’ ATM without any problems.  Just sign with the name on the check.

We had the same problem.  I could not deposit the checks into any of my accounts because my name was nowhere on the check.  We didn’t want to open a joint account.  My husband was able to deposit the checks into his account because his name did appear on the check.   I had already signed them when he took them to his credit union.  He signed them as well and they deposited them with no problems at all.
