Recording an upfront deposit without having an invoice to apply it to yet.

We receive money for services but we work off of advance payments.  There is no invoice filled out yet.  Quite often, the invoice that is created is not as much as the deposit so the remaining monies goes towards the next invoice.  This happens because the services being performed usually takes about 3 years to complete.  The cheques received are always for $2500 - $5000 a month.  I'm always so confused in QB as to how to record these deposits properly and have them linked to the invoices once the invoices are created.  I hope you understand.
