Interview after filing I-751 - options in case of denial?

Hi all. I'm a Dutch citizen who married a US citizen in 2013 (in the Netherlands). At that time we lived in the Netherlands as well, but moved to the US in 2015 once my conditional green card was granted. When I filed for removal of my conditions in late 2016, we were still married, however she left me in 2017/18 and moved out of state for a guy she met on Facebook. The divorce was finalized in January '18.


I have notified USCIS of the change, given them additional evidence of our relationship and a copy of the divorce decree. Now they have scheduled us for an interview. 


If the interview doesn't go smoothly, what are my options? If I receive a Notice to Appear, can I re-file anything to ward off the court? Our marriage/relationship was 100% legitimate, we lived in both Europe and the US together for years.


I am worried they will try to bully me out of the country and I really have nothing in Europe to go back to. Thanks for any advice.

Apparently even if this goes to court and the judge denies me I can still re-file an I751 as a single petitioner w/a waiver? Can anyone clarify please, I am trying to be prepared for the worst, even though I feel like I shouldn't have to be. Why is this system so overlong and overbearing?
