Just wanted to double check...
As the sponsor, I do not need to provide a police check do I? Only sponsors with children need to supply a police check?
Thanks!

Thanks!
it is my understanding that the sponsor needs one if there are any children involved (migrating or not)

If the applicant has migrating children, then the sponsor needs a police check.

Yes, thought this was the case. My husband has 3 children (21,19,12), however as none are migrating, we've been told I don't need to get one. We also put my son (11) down as a dependant of my husband but as he is an Australian citizen and already here we don't need to do anything for him. Fingers crossed What we've been told is correct and we won't need to scramble for a PC for me in.the end.

Same here - americas service center said my sponsor didn't need a PCC since my kids aren't migrating. DCHubby's kids over 16 y.o. likely need to provide THEIR PCCs though- I was told I have to get them for my 15 y.o. If the visa isn't granted before 16th birthday (in other words, if she's 16 at the time of grant even though she was only 15 at time of application).

Hi everyone,

I have now received both my federal and police checks. I would like to attach them to my application. However, I have reached the maximum number of files already so I can't upload them on the immi website. I had the health check done this morning. So I want my application to be complete as soon as possible - just in case a CO looks at it and decide to process it! (I'm dreaming I know).
I haven't heard from a CO yet. Where/how can I send my police checks?
Thanks for your help!

I mailed the originals to DC with a cover letter that stated my case number and all the stuff they say to refer to when corresponding with them. I sent to FedEx and tracked it there. About 4 weeks later they sent it back with a note that it was submitted and copies were attached to my file..

I am sure you have said before.. When did the FBI get your federal police check request? And when did you get it back?

I ended up with a surprise needing to get one for my sponsor and now waiting on the FBI to do their thing... And for a moment I thought I had everything done... I was wrong lol

Thanks a lot Heats.
I mailed my request to the FBI on August 25th. And got it back exacty 14 weeks later. Our credit card was debited about one month after I mailed the request though!
Sorry I must have missed it but why does your sponsor need a FBI check?

We fostered our son through CPS, and then Adopted him over 2 years ago. My wife had to get FBI checked because he is not biologically hers. (we were told back in july she would not need it but then in late OCT my CO said we did) I think its rather dumb as he is legally ours, but the Aus gov has some strange views on adoption. the crazy thing is what when you adopt from CPS and records are sealed, they give a new birth cert stating that we are is parents... if we were dishonest we could have sent the new cert in for citizenship by descent and they would have never know the difference. But we were honest and now have pay the extra $$ for him to be on my visa (and wait for citizenship as a PR) and get this extra FBI check...

Wow! That's pretty crazy! Good you are honest. Shame honesty has to cost more $$!!!
I hope your FBI check comes back soon or at least sooner than for me!
