Mother-in-law status after 1-130

My wife (now an US Citizen) invited her mom here using the i-130 process. She is here and her visa says it is good for 6 months. I have a few questions...

1. Do I know need to file a I-485 to keep her here?

2. Because it has been so soon of her arrival, will there be something arriving automatically and I don't have to file the I-485?

Before her arrival, I pretty much thought I would have to file a 1-485 once she arrived ($1000 bucks ugh) but then a fellow Uzbek national (now citizen of US) advised to my wife she paid one fee and only filed once to bring both her mother and father to the States. I know I will have to talk to this individual but it is not something I am looking forward to (shrug). I was hoping I find my answer from this website and its knowledgeable members.

Thanks for your help

There nothing else for you to do, her GC should be in the mail soon.

so with an IR5 Visa, she gets a green card. The Visa itself being valid for 6 months is just a temporary 'patch' until the green card arrives?

Correct, the STAMP is only a temp patch until the green card arrives.

Someone will correct me if I am mistaken, but the 6-mo validity only refers to the amount of time she has to use the visa enter the U.S. Once she is here, she is an LPR because the IR class of visa includes residency upon US entry.

I will correct you on this when a CR1 or a R15 enter the US, there is a stamp that is stamped on their visa that is good for six months. The stamp serves as a temp for teh GC.
