Prospective Marriage (subclass 300) police check?

Hi, I was a bit hazy on what we need to do exactly for this. My prospective partner is a US citizen living there currently and I think they need an FBI history check complete with finger prints and a local police clearance check too. Do they also need an AFP Australian police check and do I also need one, or no?

Unless she lived in Australia, or any country for that matter, for 12 months or more, she needs a police clearance from that country.

I believe the sponsor is only required to submit police clearance if there's a child migrating with the applicant. Although sometimes DIBP also requires it out of the blue. My fiance wasn't asked for a police clearance...yet.

HI,
FBI is all that is required. No AFP if not lived in Australia for 12 months or more in the last 10 years. You will need an AFP if there is a child under 18 years in the application or if requested by the department.

Yes, unless the DIBP requests AFP from you.
