Hello my name is ***** ***** I am delighted to answer your questions today. I have 35 years experience as an immigration lawyer.
It is true that if ICE sent your SEVIS termination to enforcement and a Notice to Appear before an immigration judge was filed and you failed to appear, the judge would have entered an order of removal in absentia - in your absence.
You can file a FOIA - Freedom of Information Act request with for your ICE records to find out if they issued any NTA.
Here is the link to the page which tells you how to do that.
There is no fee.
You can also retain an attorney who does deportation cases on a regular basis and they often have personal connections at the Immigration Court and ICE and they can make an informal inquiry on your behalf and get this information for you.
Remember though, this is not anything in writing and you are far better off doing a FOIA. It takes more time but it is most accurate. It can take 3-4 months for an response.
If not NTA was issued then you are good to go and can marry and adjust your status here in the US and do not have to leave while in the process.
Of course, I am sure you understand your positive rating is very important to me as we are not on salary and that is how we receive compensation, you choosing a smiley face or 3+ stars
