(RFE) Birth certificate requested

Two questions:

My stepson is a US citizen and has applied for residency for his son (I-130). After 8 months, USCIS asked for my grandson’s birth certificate (RFE). We sent that in. If everything goes well, how long until my grandson receives his residency?

My grandson is visiting now on a tourist visa. Can he stay until his case is decided or must he return on the return date he specified when he entered the US?

The approval of the I130 is the first .. and usually longest part of the processing ... after the approval the petition is sent to the NVC for documentation and the visa application process then the petition goes to the overseas consulate and the interview of the beneficiary.  It takes 12 to 15 months roughly. 

He must return to his home country as planned and wait there for the interview
