These cases require an attentive immigration attorney. You will have many more questions after this.

The spouse and minor children can immigrate with the sibling petitioned by a US citizen.
Is my answer "BEST ANSWER" and/or "HELPFUL"? If so, please acknowledge and mark it so. Mr. Smith has 25 years of successful U.S. immigration law experience with cases just like yours. Still, his response is general in nature, as all the facts are unknown to him, and cannot be construed as legal advice. Please retain immigration counsel to analyze your particular situation in order to receive specific advice. Specific answers requires knowledge of all the pertinent facts of your case. Any answers offered by Mr. Smith on Avvo are of a general nature only, and does not create an attorney-client relationship.
Yes, your sister, spouse and children (if any) can emigrate with her through your petition. It has been pretty difficult to deal with NVC lately but you would previously send the marriage certificate to them and request that the spouse be added. Children would be added by sending the birth certificate. I agree with the other attorneys who said it might be better if you got an experienced immigration attorney to assist you with this.
This answer does not constitute legal advice, and should not be relied on as each situation is fact specific, and it is impossible to evaluate a legal problem without a comprehensive consultation and review of all the facts and documents at issue. This answer does not create an attorney-client relationship.
