My wife (US citizen) is saying she will not go to the interview (greencard) which is scheduled in three week. What can I do?

Asked almost 2 years ago - Roswell, GA

I came to the US on a student Visa and have been here for 10 years. My wife and I have been married for 3 years. We are currently separated and she said she is not going to the interview which is scheduled on January 7th 2013. She also wants a divorce. I've been told I can file a self-petition. I only have two affidavits, one from her cousin and one from a school official. I am generally a reclusive person so though people can see I was stressed, I never voiced the detailed nature of what I was going through. I know that her not showing for the interview exemplifies another abusive move, along with numerous times she threatened to divorce me throughout the marriage. I have one misdeamonr charge (3 years ago) which she never failed to mention throughout the marriage.
