In court, can a cashier's check act as proof of payment?

Question Details: I'm moving and I was told to make the payment in money order or cashier's check. I asked them do they provided written reciepts as well and I was told they give copies of payment received initialed and signed. I have paid with a money order before and was told that was not legal proof of payment and could not get my money back because she did not issue me a receipt. When I seeked legal advice from a deputy sheriff and I just walked away. I really don't want to be out in the streets or out of money because they don't issue written receipts.
