Also my mom has a petition already in put by her U.S citizen brother in march 2001 would that help her if my sister sponsors her. Would they need attorney in their case?
If your sister is 21 years of age or older, she can sponsor your parents for green cards.

Is your sister over 21? if so, she can petition for her parents (meaning your parents). It sounds like your parents may able to adjust their status in the United States under 245(i). Ask your parents to talk to an immigration attorney for more information. I would hire an immigration attorney. Filing fee is expensive (visit www.uscis.gov and you will see). Your parents want to do this the right way.
