I am just trying to figure out if I need to go back to San Diego. Due to emergency situation I live in Mexico with my fiancee. She is taking care of me. I need to understand if I need to go back to San Diego to pick up mail or I can find out on any other way. If it is rejection we will have to wait it out here in Mexico. If approval she has to go back to her home country for interview etc. It is extremely hard for me physically to go through the border. I am gravely ill. So, if I can find out without going back to my place it would be helpful.

 Well when I requested an expedition I never got all those updates I just got  confirmation via email that they got my request and then a flat out denail via email. They never even did all that so here’s hoping for the best

Expect a letter either in your email or your mail box about sending in evidence of the medical situation.....

It's going to go to what ever address you provided, so if it's a San Diego address, then that's where it'll go. 

The letter you get in the mail will tell you what you need to do.

Is your fiance in mexico legally? I've seen people do K-1 within another country that wasn't their home country while having a valid visa.

They don't approve any expedite without proof though, so it'll either be a denial or a request for proof.

You just have to wait for either the mail or notification. After ours had this status on site, we received a notification about an action and after logging in it said card being produced hence approved. https://marecaranne.blogspot.com/2019/01/ead-expedite.html

So sorry about your situation and I hope it gets better.

Well like we all know here every case is different. My spouse and I simply called us consulate and a kind hearted lady provided an email asking us to email and explain our situation. We did not have any proof except that I have been living with our US citizen kids alone for over a year and they did not bother asking for any proof that they are still here with me,no passport stamp, nothing,they simply accepted our request by email which was on march on march 8th paid all fees and 3 days later payment was cleared and we got my interview date march 25th and medicals were done on 11th here I am now just waiting for my passport. So OP don't be discouraged and check your emails frequently if you used yours and your wife's, make sure you always check both. Goodluck and heal fast.

In this case you were already married, so you're already legally and financially bound.

Your ties to each other are MUCH stronger on a paperwork standpoint than if you were on a K-1.

K-1 is a promise to the government that you'll get married within 90 days to this person sponsoring you and that you won't just take off and run. I don't think I've seen a K-1 expedite that didn't require some form of proof.

In this case the USC OP is living in Mexico with his Russian fiance, their health is bad and their fiance is the care taker. They're also saying that their Russian fiance will have to leave Mexico to do their interview (which implies that their fiance is no longer legal in mexico). They don't want to go back into the USC to check their mail to find out if they approved, denied, or requested for more proof. lol (They said they are gravely ill and don't WANT to go, not that they can't go)

Depending on how much of that they told USCIS, I wouldn't expect an approval without proof.

Thank you! I went to San Diego today. It turned out that they needed proof to be faxed to them. I already had everything they requested in hand and faxed it. So, everything looks good. 

Regarding status: my fiancee is legally in Mexico on 180 days tourist visa. She left, came back in a week and they gave her another 180 days.  She is legal here but unless she is permanent resident in mexico she cannot have interview here. Thus, once we get expedite she will go back and have interview in her home country.

Ash, before making any assumptions you need to start comprehending better.  She is legal here. And yes, I am gravely ill and it is hard for me to go through the border as there is always 30 minutes line. And save LOL to yourself while getting better education.

In this case you were already married, so you're already legally and financially bound.

Your ties to each other are MUCH stronger on a paperwork standpoint than if you were on a K-1.
