Re: who accepts personal checks to proof of income?

Are you saying that your employer pays you with a personal check? Can you show regular deposits to a bank account in the same amount from these checks. In most cases a bank or creditor is probably going to want to see your tax returns claiming your income. If you are being paid by personal check and not filing taxes on the income then your chances of obtaining credit are zero or less.

Yes, if you borrrow money from a bank or a CU they are going to want to see proof of income. Proof of income includes tax returns and W-2's or 1099's. 

Sounds like your wife is not filing tax returns on her income. Why would the bank or CU give a loan to anyone if that person doesn't have the resources to repay the loan? If you can't prove you have income (you or your wife) then you don't have the resources to repay.
