My husband and I are about to file for Removal of Conditions on his green card, and we're planning to move out of state during this process. More specifically, we're filing for ROC late next week, but we're moving from NC to FL in September. Do we need to file with the VSC, since that's who has jurisdiction over NC, where we live now? Or should we file with CSC that has jurisdiction over FL where we're moving? Also, does anyone know where all we need to file our relocation as soon as we move? I know we need to file with USCIS, but what about the Moroccan consulate?

My suggestion would be that you wait if you can (i.e. if you will still be in the 90 day eligibility period to file) till you move to FL and then file your I-751 paperwork. Otherwise you will face delays with your case papers moving from CSC to VSC and sometimes USCIS is not on the up and up with address changes.

I don't know about Moroccan laws but it's always highly recommended that you update your address with the consulate that has jurisdiction over the location you reside in.
