I provided you with a link that shows precisely who and how to write out the check. You make the payment to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

If you submit your AOS application within the 2 months before your case becomes current, does it put you ahead of the people who wait until the first day of the month that they are current? Like do they look at your application first.
And if not, what’s the advantage of submitting an application early compared to waiting to the first day of the month that the case becomes current

The Chicago Lockbox treats applications in the order which they are received.

Well, a main advantage in not waiting is that it gives you extra time for your case to be adjudicated in a time-limited category. That is the actual rationale in allowing early filing for DV, which is not allowed for any other AOS category.

Hello,
If my case become current in April, can I do early filling like February? Is there any risk doing that? Or it is better to wait until your case become current.
Thank you for helping us!

Yes you can. Take a look at the FAQ section of the AOS process spreadsheet for more information about early filing.

Hello all,

My online status changed to “case is ready to be scheduled for an interview”.
Do you guys know if this means that an interview will be scheduled shortly or could the process still take a while? Thank you

My status changed first to Case is ready to be scheduled for an interview and then a little later the same day it changed to Interview was scheduled.

2 days later, I received Bio invitation and on a third day interview letter.

DO NOT SEND YOUR APPLICATION TILL YOU ARE 100 % SURE THAT YOU NUMBER WILL BE CURRENT , USUALLY THE VISA BULLETIN SHOWS THE NUMBER FOR 1 OR 2 MONTH AHEAD. WHEN YOU SEE THE NUMBER IN THE BULLETIN , SEND THE APPLICATION
