Me and my husband are planning to move to another city, same state. The process time at the new city is fast (8-16 months) compare to my city now (16-26months) this informations I got in the official website. My process will be delayed or is a good option?
Jurisdiction is based on where you live. If you move to a new city the jurisdiction changed to that city. whether you choose to move is up to you and your circumstances.

The act of moving to a new city may change the USCIS field office that has jurisdiction over your Adjustment of Status case. It is imperative that you update your address with USCIS as soon as possible after your move.
As to whether moving is a good option, there are many variables to consider which only you and your husband can assess.

There could be a delay depending upon how quickly you change your address with USCIS and how long USCIS takes to transfer the case. Good luck!
