I was selected for DV lottery and right now I am in the US with I-94 that will expire in 2016 only. Do I need to file DS 122?

Asked about 1 year ago - New York, NY

I will be applying for adjustment of status as soon as Visa Bulletin permits, no earlier than October 1, 2013. But do I need to file DS-122 prior to that? Or, do i just file AOS package?
