A: You can pay this way as long as you don't have a court order specifically telling you to pay another way. First, send a dollar to the number and get a text confirmation that she received it. After that confirmation, you can send the full amount knowing she got it. As an extra measure you can ask for a text receipt where she says "got it" after you send the money. After you send, just text "confirming I sent $400 today."

A: I agree with my colleague. Take a look at your order to see if it specifies how it must be paid. If it doesn’t, then you can send it this way, but keep records to ensure that you have proof that it was sent.
