Found this through the search, figured I'd put my timeline here and that others in same boat will update here too?

8 May 17 - I-130 pack posted to Phoenix lockbox
13 May 17 - Pack delivered
18 May 17 - Email from USCIS confirming pack received and routed to Nebraska


I'll be back with an update in about 6/7 months I guess 😝
