So our journey begins! Today we made the first step on the hopefully not so long road to the U.S.

26/10 - I-130 sent via recorded delivery
26/10 - Already have a lot of documents such as ACRO, Police Certificate, Military Record etc. Although will need to apply for some of these again as they are dated June 2017 (Didn't think we'd wait this long to start the process originally)

Now to just impatiently wait for a response! Recent timelines on this post are very encouraging so I am hopeful for a speedy process.

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

I-130 submitted: 25th Nov 16
I-130 approved: 28th Jan 17
DS-260 submitted: April 12th
Medical: 16th October 2017
Interview: 20th October 2017
(221g - medical results not yet arrived at embassy)
Visa Issued: 25th October 17
Visa in hand: 30th October

We slowed the process down after the I-130 was approved in January. A previous J1 visa had the 2 year home rule attached and I still had 9 months to fulfil.

Submitted the I-130 so early because we panicked after November 8th (same-sex couple) plus the fee was going up.
