Is your ex-spouse a Filipina? If so, you should be able to get the visa, if not, things may be difficult for them to stay any permanent length of time.

The 13a resident visa requires you as the foreigner to be legally married to a Philippine citizen. You do not apply for a 13a it is you partner who applies for it on your behalf. Any children from that union will automatically receive Philippine citizenship so <no> visa would be necessary. The status of any children from a previous marriage will depend on the status of your ex wife. If she is a filipina all is well as your children can claim Philippine citizenship so do not require a visa to live in the Philippines. If you ex wife is not a filipina she and your children will each need a quota visa which is currently about 18k pesos each and only 50 per year of any one nationality are released.

For your ex-wife, you can look into PRA.

The problems as I see it is that the ex wife will need to deposit something like $60,000 for the four of them, and I assume there will be no pension so how will they support themselves in the Philippines.

I would be prepared for that and have a follow-on ticket for everyone (except the filipina wife) as you won't be allowed to board without one. If it were me, I would get a changeable ticket for the ex-wife and kids as it may not work out for them culturally.

A lot of people buy a cheap onward ticket from the Philippines to somewhere in SE Asia (HK, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan) that typically costs less than $100. Sometimes you get lucky and can get a promo fare for significant savings.
Correction on the cost... .$550 annually per individual...
