  • You have to wait for him. It goes by whose name is on the check. If it is a joint account the checks need to have BOTH people's names on the check. It doesn't matter if you are married or not.

  • If your name is on the signature card at the bank, you can sign your name no matter whose name is on the check. The bank will honor it. My mother and I both have our signatures on my grandmother's bank account's signature card although our names are not on the checks.

  • Plus he would have to press charges against you. Just sign his name.

  • If your signature is on file at the bank, then you can legally sign the check.

  • When I've gotten a checks from my husband and the account is in both our names and he not around to sign for it. This is what I do I just have the check deposited in the checking or savings account. I don't sign it but the bank justs tell me to sign it or not when I explain.

    Give the bank a call and they will tell you.

  • Go get new checks printed. If your signiture is on file with the bank, then you are on the account. Just like starter checks that don't have anything printed on them and you have to write it in.
