What kind of document did you upload for getting extra time.? could you share the details
Also,
I checked California DOJ site to understand the process.
The process mentions us to send the FD-258 card along with a cheque and the letter requesting for PCC from Australia Immigration.
Their site mentions that DOJ only accepts original FD card. does this mean that we need to buy original cards and use the same for taking our finger prints? OR can we just download the latest version of FD-258 from the FBI site & take the print of the card in A4 paper and use this to take our finger prints?

Any one who has done it before, please help!!!.

I just put a letter asking CO to give extra time and uploaded in PCC section. I think you are not in US, you can buy FD-258 card on amazon.in it is damn expensive here. but if you google you can find lot of private agencies in India providing fingerprinting on these cards. They are expensive but good thing is that they can take your clean fingerprints. I think they will notary also, send these with required fees to CA. Give local address to get your report. Please confirm once with CA if you need to notary, I think they have an email id on their page.

FBI allows printouts, NY allowed. NJ didnt allow they gave their own card, similar to FD-258.

Offshore/ March 9 lodgement for software engineer

Itís a very standard request
Everyone has to provide it
You should have checked at the website on the ways to prove functional English and the evidence required
You can use the school also if that is easier

Cheers

Not the right thread but still let me answer this:

There are three types of schools - Public Schools, Catholic Schools and Private Schools.

All Public Schools are Zoned - means if you rent a house within the zone of particular school, the school will have to offer admission to the kids. Some good schools are very particular about the zones so you need to provide details like your house contract, welcome letter for utilities followed by copy of bills to prove you are really staying at the mentioned address. They do visit and physically check if you are staying at the address. So unless you are here and have found a house, you can not enroll into Public schools.

I have no idea about how Catholic or Private Schools operate as never wanted my kids to go there.

Not sure why this field doesn't update. Maybe it only changes if there is CO contact?

I have added a few additional documents after lodging. The 'Last Updated' field has not changed. However, the date against each file uploaded is accurate.

No, its probably got something to do with updates. Immiaccount still says 12-20 months.

Cheers!
