I'm filling out the I-130 paperwork and I'm stumped on part 4, questions about the Beneficiary's Family.  I know I list myself first, but does my minor (age 12) son from my first marriage also get listed?


For the I-130, no need to list petitioner's child(ren) from previous marriage, under the section for beneficiary's family.  That said, you may want to list your son on the I-130 anyway, to be consistent with the I-485, which does require the applicant's stepchildren to be listed.

added recommendation be consistent with I-485

Not required, but I recommend that you list your son as his stepson on the I-130, just to be consistent with the I-485.  Check part 6 on page 8 of the I-485.
