Default Immigrant Visa (DCF: I-130 Filed in UK) - TIMELINE ONLY!

Continued from previous thread here: http://Immigrant Visa (DCF: I-130 Fi...Timeline Only!

That thread was getting very long and out of date, so here is a continuation starting with posts from 2014.

Also, please keep this thread for sharing timelines ONLY. If you have a specific question regarding any procedure, forms, medical, interview, etc. please create a NEW thread with your specific question, as it relates to your own case. Those kinds of questions get lost in timeline threads, and takes it way off topic.

Thank you,
Rene
