I 751 interview was on 10/28/12 on 11/12/12 I received a notice of denial since my spouse was a unable to attend intervied, i provided court docs as to y he couldn't be at interview. On 2/26/13 I went in for an info pass appt. I was told my case is still pending and since its been three years pending I should file for citizenship. They said nothing about the the denial letter. I check my case status online and it says pending as well. What should I do. Refile i175 or file n400
If you received a written denial of your I-751 then it would appear that your case has been denied and that the computer may not have been updated or the clerk you spoke with is giving you incorrect information. You are entitled to have your application reviewed in removal proceedings, though it seems there are other issues which also need to be addressed. You are also entitled to proof of lawful status while this is all going on. Consult with an experienced immigration attorney who can review your case and advise you how best to proceed.
If you file N400, they will eventually put you in removal proceedings. there, you will be able to challenge the denial. If you win, your CG will be reinstated. If you lose, you may file to readjust if you are still in a relationship. If no other relief is available, you will be ordered deported. hence, the best thing to do is to seek help from an immigration attorney. I am sure FL has some to offer.
You need to hire an immigration attorney to handle this for you. There may be a way to argue that the i751 should not have been denied (or that in fact it was never denied as it is still pending) but that is not something that you can do on your own. It is likely that this argument will need to be made in immigration court where your case will probably end up.
