since your husband is USC, probably would be quicker from him to petition your son's as stepchild. he'll need to submit a separate I-130 petition for each child.

Is your spouse a US Citizen? If so then have your spouse file I-130s for step children, this will get IR-2 visas for them, with immediate processing, about 1 year or so.

If your spouse is NOT a US Citizen or you are unmarried, then you would file the I-130s for UN-Married children under 21. This will take some time to be processed by USCIS and NVC, timing is about 4 years or so for F2A out of PI

Nope, income becomes a factor only when the petitions get approved and sent on to NVC, at that time NVC will send out I-864 request and fee bill.

If you are working and making an income, you can add your income to that of your husband by providing an I-864A for each child.

The required GROSS income before deductions and tax to sponsor you and your children is $26,500 for a family of 4.

This amount may go up by the time of approval.

As I said eairlier 1 year if a US citizen files for the visas, 4 years or MORE if an LPR files the I-130s.

NOTE: if and when the time comes, you can use a Joint Sponsor to sponsor your children.

Also you can combine your income to your spouse, and should be able to sponsor them.

Again the better approach is to habe your spouse file the petitions, the marriage was before their 18th birthdays so a step parent CAN file for them.
