Assuming the kids are minors (under 18 when you married), you filing as step dad will be much quicker- about 9 months.

Yes the kids are both very young.

the only other question i would have is, is it necessary to file an I-130 for each child individually??

my wife has two daughters.

thanks again

Yes, separate for each child, separate fees and bio forms etc. You can send it in the same envelope though.

Its better if the USC spouse is filing I-130 for the kids. That's what we did with my 2kids.

thanks for your reply.

I am the USC and i will file for my wifes children as a step parent.

I will use the I-130 to obtain CR2 visas for the children.

Am I correct?
