We are just starting our process of relocating to the US from the UK. Our timeline:

23/12/2017: I-130 sent recorded delivery to US Embassy in London.
29/12/2017: Email confirmation of petition filed, with processing time quoted as 90 days (is this likely to be the case?).

So we started the process way back in mid June but put everything on hold as we got our Petition approval back so quickly.

15/06/17 I-130 sent
23/06/17 Email received stating petition received
25/06/17 Payment taken
27/06/17 Petition Approved - Letter received
03/07/17 LND number received in post
Paused on the process
01/11/17 Requested Vaccination and Medical records from GP
01/11/17 ACRO certificate requested
08/11/17 ACRO certificate received
15/11/17 picked up vaccination and medical records from GP
29/12/17 Completed DS-260 online
04/01/18 Booked medical for 10/01/18 and interview for 18/01/18
10/01/18 Medical at Knightsbridge- needed an additional letter from Dr before medical can be signed off
12/01/18 Dr letter submitted to Knightsbridge
18/01/18 Interview at Embassy (2nd day the new location was open!) Our medical hadn't been received so approved pending receipt of medical (221g)
29/01/18 Called Knightsbridge to see if the medical was sent and chase, they stated it was but the embassy is very delayed because of their move so things are not being processed as quickly.
30/01/18 CEAC was updated again but still says Administrative Processing -I know in the big scheme of things this is not long but we can't make any plans until it switches to ISSUED.

FINAL UPDATE:

26/8/17 - French police record requested
29/8/17 - ACRO police report requested
30/8/17 - Married!
01/9/17 - Picked up vaccination record, US passport size photos taken, I-130 sent RM "guaranteed" next day
04/9/17 - I-130 tracking updated to reflect attempted delivery. Rescheduled for 06/9/17.
05/9/17 - Tracking states 'delivered'i - and so it begins

08/9/17 - Payment Taken $535
06/10/17 - Petition Approved

[very long-feeling gap in which we gathered i864 info, medical records etc]

18/11/17 - LND number sent by post TO A DIFFERENT ADDRESS (not my mailing address!) luckily we know the people who just moved in and picked it up the same day.
19/11/17 - Filled in DS 260 and booked interview online
20/11/17 - Booked medical over the phone with KD
24/11/17 - Attended medical - need extra vacc info and 2 injections
29/11/17 - Had vacc at GP, evidence emailed to KD.
8/12/17 - Visa Interview in London (in and out in 45 minutes with minimal questions and a weighty amount of paperwork) APPROVED!
13/12/17 - email saying visa issued
18/12/17 - picked up packet from DX Northampton
27/1/18 - POE Philadelphia, directed to wait in visitor line (approx 30mins). Primary officer Williams took prints and asked a couple questions, escorted to secondary where I waited about 5 minutes while he processed my comically large envelope. (At this point I asked about using my married name on my green card and he said not possible, my maiden name is on my paperwork - annoying) He wished me luck and sent me on my way.

Iā€™m in šŸ‘šŸ»šŸ˜¬šŸŽ‰ now for all the other hurdles!
