I'm assuming you are the one in the US, so no. You do not need to submit your wife's birth certificate with the petition. Only a photocopy (front and back) of your own birth certificate as proof of your US citizenship. Read the I-130/I-130a instructions carefully, it lists everything you need to include.

What about my wife passport and passport picture i really dont know that's why i need help and yes im the one live in thr usa 

You will need to write her passport number on the form where it is indicated, but other than that you do not need to send any photocopies or anything of her passport. She is also not required to submit photos of herself with the submission. You, however, will need to send two passport sized photos of yourself. NOT pictures of your passport, but pictures of you that are passport sized. You can get these for $15 at Walgreens. Read the form instructions.

You have to send TWO passport sized photos that adhere to passport photo rules. Best to get them done at somewhere like Walgreens. Who knows why they want it, but they do. So you must submit it. Along with anything else that is required as stated in the I-130 instructions on the USCIS website.

Also, I noticed you are a naturalized citizen, in which case you will either need to submit photocopies of YOUR US passport (ALL pages) as proof of citizenship, OR your naturalization certificate + your birth certificate from your country of birth (plus a translation) as proof of citizenship.

Because that's what it says you need to include (2, actually).

Read the I-130 instructions in full. It describes the necessary documents. It also has a checklist on the bottom of the last page.

Also verify this against the guide on this website (click "guides" at the top of any page).

What will come up please

If you moved to America originally as the spouse of another US citizen then they are saying that you or your wife may be asked about that

Are you a US citizen?  If so, how did you acquire your citizenship?

Have you read through the I-130 form instructions?

Have you read through the VJ guide for CR1/IR1 process?
