  1. It depends on what the RFE is for. Can you tell us what type of application and or/petition you submitted? And even with that information we can answer based upon experience, there is no set amount of time.

  2. This depends on so many details that it is impossible to accurately answer in a public forum like Avvo. USCIS does list standard processing times on their website.

    Depending on what kind of petition this is, you may want to hire an attorney to be sure you deal properly with the RFEs. It is always better to get things done right the first time than to try an fix things after a denial of a petition.
