How long for AOS interview after EAD is received

My husband received his EAD in the mail today, and my question is if anyone knows if it's possible that he'll have his interview for AOS in the next two months? We filed back in August and didn't apply for advance parole because we stupidly thought it would all be done by December, when he has a flight home to visit his mother for the holidays. I'm worried that he may be stuck here until after that if his interview date is after his flight. If anyone knows who I should call specifically with any questions that would be appreciated as well, I'm on hold with the NVC right now but I can never tell if I'm calling the right department.

He came in on a K1, we married and filed at the beginning of August.

Thanks guys.

It's not possible to predict when he may have an interview, it depends on your local office. There is also a good chance he will receive an interview waiver, and just get the green card in the mail.

He can still apply for AP. If he files now he should have it well before December. He should do it ASAP.

As stated, you can file for AP now. You may or may not receive it by Xmas, as it's usually a ~90 day turnaround.

If you file for it now, complete an I-131, together with a copy of his I-485 NOA showing that his AoS application is still pending, and there will be no filing fee.

If you do not do this, or he does not receive his AP by the time of his intended travel, he should not travel. If he leaves without AP or his green card then his application will be deemed to have been automatically abandoned and he will be stranded outside the US.
