I married a women from Venezuela, She is in the US with her two children 13 & 11 with all pending asylum cases.

We want to file for adjustment of status to obtain green cards.  On the USCIS site it says I have to send 3 different I-130 forms one for each?

Do I have to pay the 535 fee for each? I thought I could just send in one I-130 because the children are considered derivatives? 

Then once that is done or concurrently file forms I-485 one for each. We would like to get the ball rolling I'm just not sure how many I-130's to send in and 

also would like the children to be able to travel to see their biological father in Chile.

As a step child of a USC there is no derivative.   Separate petitions,  separate fee payments 


YMMV

As above, if you are a USC, separate i130/i485 for each.

 

As for travel - they probably won’t be able to travel for 4-6 months after you file until they get advance parole documents (make sure to file for advance parole with the other forms). Do they have valid passports?

The passports are expired.  Venezuela stopped issuing any passports and such. I believe that Columbia can possibly help out.  I think I heard that 

they are servicing Venezuelan documents there. 

So how will the kids get passports to travel with? They can’t go to Colombia either? Or do they have this thing with the automatic extension of expired Venezuelan passports applying to them? Anyway the point is that if you want them to travel to Chile you have two separate issues to address: that they need valid passports to travel with, and that they need to have approved advance parole if they travel before they get their green cards,

This isn't going to be fast, cheap or fun:

 

Each of the get I-130, I-864, I-485, and I-765.  A I-131 would be relevant if they had passports.

Your wife also does a I-130a.

 

Pay the fee for each I-130 and I-485.   FIle the I-765 with the I-485 and there is no fee.   Do the I-765 so you get social security numbers while awaiting the green cards.

Not until getting the passports and a green card.

OP does not seem to have mentioned how they entered, the Asylum issue suggests to me this is a matter for a Lawyer, presumably she has one.

Not sure if the asylum claim causes a problem using or renewing claimed COP passport, so agree legal advice is probably worthwhile.
