    As the sibling of a USC, you would be family-based fourth preference, the minimum wait time for a visa is 10 years (it is a minimum of 12 years currently) but depending on what country you are from, it could be as long as 25 years (or more). It is partly due to this fact that at the time your priority date (I-130 filing date) becomes current on the Visa Bulletin and you file for an actual immigrant visa that YOU are allowed to include any current spouse and unmarried children under 21 years old at that time. YOU will add them during the actual visa application process in the future. NOTHING needs to be done until then. Your sister will have to file an I-864 for you and your dependents in the future.

    see: http://travel.state.gov/visa/bulleti...etin_1360.html You can sign up for monthly e-mail messages so that you can keep an eye out for the priority date to become current.
