My spouse and her child live in the Philippines and I am a US citizen living in USA. We have been married two years and after 4 visits it's time to bring her, and her 7 year old son Stateside I will fill out I-130 forms for both. 1) do I have to pay double the fee $535 X 2 ? 2) Should I include form I-130A with the initial filing package, or can that wait ? 2) Are there any other forms ( not documents, we have those) that should be included in the initial package? ....it sometimes gets confusing. 3) Her son's father is nowhere to be found and is not listed on his birth certificate. Is it okay to proceed with his birth certificate showing "father unknown" or is there additional documentation the USCIS will require ? ( her son's natural father would be impossible to track down and there's been no contact with him his entire life) I don't want to adopt him until he gets to the States because I understand it can be a nightmare to do it in the Philippines. I would like to thank you for any responses and for helping me in this matter. James S
