If you are eligible to adjust status, you might choose option #2. However, you should consult with a qualified immigration attorney before making a decision. I do not mean this with any disrespect, but if something as simple as your check being incorrect was the reason for the rejection of the first packet, it might be a wise investment to have a trained professional represent you with what could easily be called one of the most important things you will ever do in your life. . You can find a qualified immigration lawyer in your area by searching at www.ailalawyer.org. Best of luck to you.
Only immediate relatives or persons with a current Priority Date can choose Option 2 but if eligible no reason not to do this. You might consult with an immigration attorney to see what they would charge to guide you through the process so you don't make more mistakes.
