38 C.F.R. § 20.900(c) (2016)

Question

So January I submitted my eviction notice, electric shut off notice, insurance cancellled notice,, EVERYTHING for an advanced Docket,, to my VSO who's office is in the BVA building Washington DC. I was told within a few weeks I'll hear something. Well 100 + days later still no ruling on it & told they have a " Huge backlog of these as well since the new year" .. wouldn't you think though that any appeal with a docket date of 2017 then shouldn't be allowed to be adjudicated until older dockets who's advancement still hasn't been heard yet?

thank you all for the support. so the new Question is,,, after your Docket has been Advanced they no longer need to wait on decision in Docket order but,,,, are they still allowed to take all dockets before mine? docket year is 15 and my hearing has already taken place back in may of 15 in DC, so now its been advanced how long before judge looks at it???

Your docket is now in the "other" line. It will just be faster then the "normal" line if you know what I mean.
