I received my green card (From K1 visa) in March and I just got admitted into a graduate school 5 hours away (driving) from where we are living now. My husband is going to move with me but he has to wait 4 months to quit his job. Of course he will visit me every two weeks but we won't be living together those 4 months. 

Is it going to be an issue for our removal of conditions process? Will we get in trouble with USCIS for doing this? Our priority is being together and not risking anything for ROC

Probably not - life happens all the time.  4 months is not terribly long.  Make sure your both listed on the new lease (or mortgage or whatever).  


Ensure to note it in your cover letter and be prepared to explain the situation at the interview.

Don't worry.  This happens to a lot of people.  When it comes time to submit your I-751, just be sure you explain why you had two separate addresses for 4 months.

My wife and I lived separately for a few years while she was finishing graduate school. I visited her every other week. Our interview, for AOS, was simple but we also included evidence showing that we were in touch with one another e.g. gas charge on credit card bill, phone bill showing that we talked to each other everyday, and evidence from the university that she was going to graduate school. As long as you explain your situation you will be fine

No, this is perfectly normal. Things come up that cannot be helped.
