Immigration Law Questions? Ask an Immigration Lawyer.
Hello, thank you for your answer, my number is:
(XXX blanked because I am not sure of how visible my answer is on this site, and I don't want any issue with identity theft)
https://www.dvlottery.state.gov/ and putting in your number.
2) You should wait for the confirmation receipt of payment which can take 2 to 4 weeks or so.
3) Then you would file the I-485 (one for each family member) and include proof of the payment to DOS, medical exam, two passport-style photos, check or money order for the $1070 fee for the I-485, police clearance letters, copies of birth certificates, marriage certificates, proof of legal entry into the U.S., proof of maintaining your status, and proof that you meet the educational or job requirements.
Generally, in about 6 months or so you should receive and interview and after approval, get your green card in the mail a few eeks later. Congratulations!

No, it does not. If I put my information in that page it takes me to the entrant status check page. That page is where I got the case number XXXXX (the one in my previous answer), and the only link it has is to the http://www.dvselectee.state.gov/ site, which in turn explains that I should go to the USCIS website. The USCIS website redirects back to the Dep. of State website, and does not explain the process.
This is what I explained in my original question, which still stands.
