Do I have to file 3 separate I-130 forms? 3 Answers as of April 06, 2015

I am a US citizen through naturalization. I was going to file form I-130 for my wife and my 2 unmarried kids under 18. But, do I have to file 1 form for my wife and list the kids under her or do I have to file 3 separate I-130 forms for three of them? Also, do I need to file any other form other than I-130 form? Thank you.

Since I don't know how young your children are, I recommend you file 3 separate ones.

Are your wife and children overseas? Are they in the US? IF they are in the US, what is their current immigration status? If you need to petition for them, you need to submit three separate I-130 petitions as immediate relatives cannot have any derivative beneficiaries.

Generally, each person needs their own I-130, etc package.
