On Page 3 of i-130a it states the spouse needs to sign. I'm confused here. So my wife should NOT sign it? Even if I'm with her currently overseas?

I didn’t say she should not sign.

Well, you should have put your situtation in the first post clearly.

 

Of course it’s better if your wife signs the form if both of you are living overseas. 

 

The beneficiary living abroad doesn’t need to sign and mail the form if the petitioner was in the US.

You were right the first time, almost.  It's not where the spouse lives that determines whether they need to sign the form.  It's where they physically ARE when the petition is filed.  Of course, they CAN sign the form.  They just are not required to sign or provide a passport photo if they are not IN the USA when the petition is filed.

 

The petitioner "mails" the I-130 package.  If you're going to try to help, be precise enough to be clear.  Your first answer was sufficient.  The OP needs to read and HEED....ALL the I-130 instructions.

Since we have to file 2 i-130 petitions for my wife and her kid, do i need to send them in separate packages? or can i send them both in one?

One package with two separate stacks of paper, and two separate checks.
