family??

So I am a permanent resident, I have a 17 year old son living with me, I don't have a job yet. My sister, back in the US, wants to come here. She would probably have very little money and an eta. From what I have read on the website, it takes years and a huge bond to emigrate other adult family members over. (she is over 50). I want her to come visit me, but I don't know about keeping her here, it's hard enough for me and my son. What happens if someone overstays and do they know? She's been a professional artist in the past and could perhaps help me in my present endeavor but, I don't want to get into trouble.

If your sister is trying to find a way to emigrate to Australia she should not be considering breaking the law by overstaying OR working while on a tourist visa. These are both great ways to make a difficult process impossible. Have you had a look at the visa wizard on the DIAC website to get an idea of what options may be available to her?
