Question
My wife and i are filling out the forms fo AOS. She has a 12 year old child in china. What do we have to do to bring he to the US and should we do it with our papers are wait untile my wife gets he green card.

Answer
Your wife's papers go to the lockbox in Chicago. You can petition for her daughter. You need a separate I-130 that goes to the Service Center that has jurisdiction over your residence. The daughter's case will be processed abroad after the visa petition is approved. You can file that now and do not have to wait until your wife gets a green card, since her daughter was under 18 when you married.
