I am in the process of gathering info before filing for I-130 petition for my wife and son. My wife and I got married in the beginning of this January but we had our son before we got married in August of 2018. I went to the US embassy for the crba and us passport for my son. I should be picking up my son's passport this week at the embassy. So would I need to complete two I-130 and one I-130A? In my petition I will be including our marriage paperwork, our three passports, crba, my current paystubs/tax return, my bank statements, letter of employment from my employer, pictures of us together since we met in 2016, and Facebook messages. Is there any other items or forms that I am missing? Any helpful feedback is appreciated.

No. Just one I-130 and your wife completes one I-130A. Also, if you reside in the same country with your wife, is the country listed in this link? If its listed then the way faster Direct Consular Filing option is available.

I live in the states. Would I have to complete forms I-134 and G-325A like when submitting a K1 petition? Are there any other uscis forms other than the I-130 and I-130A that I would need to attach when submitting?

See this guide: https://www.visajourney.com/content/i130guide1

Later, at the NVC stage more forms (DS-260, I-864, etc) will need to be submitted; see "What Happens After You Mail the I-130 Out?" section in the link above.

If you reside in a Direct Consular Filing country see this guide: https://www.visajourney.com/content/dcf

That K-1 info is outdated and was never relevant to the IR-1/CR-1 process. Since 06/09/2017 G-325A is not needed for K-1: https://web.archive.org/web/20170427053222/https://www.uscis.gov/i-129f

Follow the Guide here by clicking on the word Guides at the top of any page here.  The I-130 and I-130a instructions will tell you what else to submit with the official forms.  Study of those instructions will be critical to your ultimate success.

 

Do not submit pay stubs or tax returns with the petition.  Those come later, after the petition is approved.  Time to start studying.  You don't know WHAT you don't know, until you study.
