I'm a U.S. citizen. Since wedding, I have moved into my spouse's residence. I'm about to file
I-130/I-485 package. However, my current driver license still shows my old address. Should I get my driver license updated with new address? And at what point in the marriage based green card process that driver license will be used as evidence? During interview? Thank you for your time
Not only does Georgia law require updating a license withing a specified deadline from date of a move to a new address, but failing to have a current address on your driver's license may trigger suspicion of fraud at the adjustment of status interview for your spouse.

You should update your driver license address immediately. USCIS regularly looks at addresses listed on driver licenses as evidence of the living arrangements of a husband and wife.
At the very least, at the adjustment interview USCIS will likely ask to see your driver license, and your spouse's if he/she has one, and if you have not changed your address, and/or if you update your address a significant period of time after you began living with your spouse, then USCIS might consider that to be a problem.
I also suggest that you consult with an experienced immigration attorney about your case, to have the best chance of success.
