I had my citizenship interview a couple of days ago based on being a permanent resident for 6.5 years,I obtained my green card through marriage.I filed for divorce after about 2 years and 10 months coz ex was abusive, before I filed for divorce I had an injuction granted against her by the judge.In the citizenship interview everything went well, except the officer realized that exwife withdrew the I75-1 a few days before it was approved! so she withdrew it but yet it got APPROVED! and that was 4 years ago! the officer couldnt make a decision and said had to check with supervisor. Officer knew ex withdrew I-751 because I got the TRO granted against her and filed for divorce so she is getting revenge. it is an odd situation, will I be denied Citizenship my lawyer says not to worry!
I tend to agree with the advice you have received. However, your case is not to be taken lightly (a little worrying is merited under these facts). Your facts could raise concerns for the USCIS regarding misrepresentations on your prior removal of conditions case (did you advise of the separation?) or on your Naturalization case, did you lie about making prior misrepresentations in your current application. (I know it sounds convoluted, but this is actually the thinking of some USCIS offices).
If you want a reliable second opinion, you should schedule a consultation with a second experienced immigration attorney and bring your entire file. If your attorney that is confident in his/her position then they should not have a problem with that.
