you make an apointment time when you fill out your paperwork online, you don't have a choice with that
you CAN pay for your state fee and L1 fee when you are done with your online app with a CC or DC.
The L1 I went to took cash or cashiers check, but I paid online
You'll still need your local payment, but call them up before you go in, some take checks, some take cash, some only take a cashiers check.
You get your final paper work when you go into your local court/sherrif etc.
