Hello, I am sorry you've been waiting that long for an answer - we missed somehow your question. I don't know if you still need the answer.
I believe the advice you were given was to appeal from the negative decision of the Urzad Wojewodzki in Krakow. You indeed have a right to appeal within 14 days.
If you don't receive a reply - you can always contact the office that reviews your case and ask for information.
You should also know, that filing an application for residence permit on time, you are entitled to a stamp in your passport that legalizes your stay for the entire duration of the legalization procedure - including the appeal process in the II instance.
Also, it is important to know, that if the appeal fails - you can file a new application, to the Urzad Wojewodzki, again. As a spouse of Polish citizen, you also cannot be deported or fined for illegal stay in Poland. Even not having a valid visa anymore, you can still file a new application for residence permit (it is possible almost only in the cases of spouses of Polish citizens).

Migration Helpline (Infolinia Migracyjna) is now run thanks to voluntary work of PFM staff. Before, it was maintained (2012-2014) thanks to co-financing of the project Information Center for Foreigners 2, run by PFM in partnership with the Association for Legal Intervention and the Mazovian Governor. It is co-financed by the European Fund for Integration of Third Country Nationals and by the state budget.
In the years 2009-2011 the project was run as part of Information Center for Foreigners run by the same partnership, also co-financed by the European Fund for Integration of Third Country Nationals and by the state budget.
