I am wondering if applying for his green card is enough by filling I 130 form, or if I need anything else. He is coming to visit me soon, it is OK if he stays in USA, or he will need to go back to argentina until we get his green-card?
The I-130 is only the first step. It is NOT an application for permanent residence for your son. Depending on whether your son is married or single, he will need to wait for years before he is eligible to apply for a green card. It is impossible to predict exactly how long he will wait, but currently the wait is about 7 years for a single person, and 10-11 years for a married person.
Your son may NOT remain in the USA while he is waiting, unless he has some other type of visa or authorization for him to stay in the United States.
You should consult with an immigration attorney about the situation.
