You just have to endorse it under his.

On a side note. The PP who said you can endorse it with Mickey Mouse and no one would notice? She is so right. DH still has his own checking account for the time being (long story) and I accidentally wrote a check with it, signed my name. It cashed with zero problems. Scared my DH though since he saw the activity, but didn’t write any checks. Made me feel REALLY safe about my blank checks sitting in my desk.

One more chiming in that it’s not totally weird that he has his mother on the account!  When I got my first job I opened up a checking account with my mom because I was too young to open one on my own.  The only way to take her off the account is to close it, and to me it’s not worth the hassle so she’s just stayed on there. 

@Cem0930:  You should be fine to deposit the check if you sign under your husband’s signature.

I think it will be fine. We’ve made mistakes like this before, and it’s never been a big deal.

i would sign too and tell the teller if you can. We used an ATM and got charged fees for incorrect endorsements. If I could have talked to someone, they would have let it go through.

My mom and grandma have a joint account together.  They are both married.  I don’t see the issue with that.

Not a problem at all. My husband signed his name on checks that were made out only to me accidentally and we still deposited them with no problem. As long as you also sign it it should be fine.

Our checks were written out to a variety of people.  DH, Me, DH and I with the same last night (I didn’t change), etc…

We both signed all of them and deposited them in my account.  No issues.
