Your fingerprints will be submitted to Cal-DOJ immediately from our Live Scan locations. Typical turn-around time from Cal-DOJ is only a few hours. Vast majority of the fingerprint background check transactions are completed within 48 hours. However, occasionally, transactions can take up to a few weeks. Older (age) applicant’s transactions can often take longer due to poorer fingerprint quality and some of the older fingerprint records are still paper based which requires manual work.
California Department of Justice typically sends the result within 48 hours. However, it can take up to a few weeks. After 2 weeks, visit Cal-DOJ’s Live Scan status website https://applicantstatus.doj.ca.gov/ to check on the status of your transaction. You will be asked to enter the live scan assigned 10-digit Applicant Tracking identifier (ATI) for your transaction along with your birth date. The Live Scan operator should have written the ATI on the bottom of your copy of the 8016 Form after fingerprinting. Please note that the ATI is a combination of capital letters and numbers.
If the Cal-DOJ states that they cannot locate your transaction, it does not mean they did not receive it. Generally, it means that they have not completed their processing. Wait a couple more weeks and try again. If after 4 weeks there is still not status, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for further assistance. When emailing us, please include your ATI number, your name, and date of your live scan transaction.
