You can call the USCIS and they will help answer any questions for free. It's the government entity in charge of immigration.

I would ask a professional on this. It is too important to let some random people online guess.

If you are going to stay with the stepdaughters as well, you will have to list their names. For the birth place of your wife, you can indicate Serbia and into brackets right former Yugoslavia. You do need an immigrant officer to take you through this paper work.

Ask a professional, but my guess is...

For the first question, they're asking questions about her, not you, so her name and her children. You're not filing the paperwork for citizen of yourself and your daughter, you're filing for your wife's citizenship. This is especially apparent if, elsewhere on the paper, there's a field for your name.
For the second question, you can put "Serbia (formerly the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia)" or "The Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (now Serbia)" if you want. A person is going to read this, not a computer. Same applies to the parents.

Like I said before, don't be afraid to call USCIS themselves and ask questions. It's what they're there for.

thanks man I called the national customer service line twice and they told me they're unable to assist me with a few questions which is complete Bs because on the back of the form clearly states"for questions on how to fill"complete" the form call the national etc... and then when I called the immigration lawyer it was like talking to an autistic person who was only concerned about money isn't fair I'm only stumped on a few question on this I-130 form the rest explains itself what to submit and so on
