I'm trying to get information on bringing my Filipino wife children to the US.  the son is 12 and the daughter is 8.  I was looking on the site and it says I have to file a K4 but it also says I-130. I'm confused on which to file.  She is already here on a K1 visa and she has been here for 2 years and we are about to upgrade to a 10 year green card for her.

You file a I 130 sounds like the intent is for you to be applying for them as a Step Parent 

 

One each

No K4

 

Best bet is to read the guides

The kids are not eligible for K4 since mom did not get a K-3.

 

The USC stepparent should file separate I-130 for the kids (two fees - separate everything).  They will be in the CR-2/IR-2 category.  This will start them on getting immigrant visas and green cards upon entry into the US.  Read the Guide on a USC petitioning an unmarried child under age 21.  You will need to provide your marriage certificate with their birth certificates.
