I'm struggling to prepare a request for California State Police Clearance.
As part of the Partner Visa application, my partner from USA has been advised to obtain an FBI and State Police Clearance for each state he has lived in - which is only California.
A summary of the requirements & our efforts:
Surely someone had completed this or has some sort of idea on where I can go for ink fingerprinting, or share their experiences with obtaining a Police Check.
I don't want to attempt doing prints myself or make multiple submissions because the whole process (fees, mail etc.) is costing over $100. I've spent countless days and weeks trying to organise this and have been constantly hitting a wall. Any advice or ideas would be greatly appreciated.

I am in the exact same position right now. I am from California and here in Brisbane. My partner and I are gearing up for the partner visa. From my understanding, you can print a finger print card out as long as it's on a stock card material and not traditional paper. We are going to look in our area to see if there are other options but if traditional finger printing is phased out here like it is in Sydney, I suggest perhaps getting, if possible, a notarized statement from a police department stating that it's phased out. I know it sounds like a crazy idea, but this is what I was thinking about doing if I'm in the same situation.
I personally would get mine scanned here in Aus and do the ink prints myself so the FBI can immediately tell they are your prints. I know it sounds a bit much but I feel like due to this entire process I'd rather do more than needed to avoid any hiccups.
I am sorry if this response isn't of much help, but hopefully it is somewhat. Best of luck to you and your significant other.
