PR Family Visas?

have an Australian Permanent Resident Visa, Employer Nomination Sponsored, Subclass 856. I received my visa in May 2010 and left Australia shortly after for educational purposes and went to the US.
In the US I got married and had a child and now we are thinking to return to Australia.
My husband and my child are American citizens, they don't have an Australian visa. I was told I we would have to apply for new visas for them and I have to basically "sponsor" them, prove my income, job etc.

Can they come to Australia with me on tourists visas and remain in the country whilst I go back to my job?
Is it better to wait until I have picked up work for a few months before applying for their visa in order to show job and income consistency?
Or can we apply right away for their visas based on my job and my income?
How much does the visa application cost, approximately? And how long will it probably take until they get Australian Visas?

Thank you for your advice!!

Phew, lots of questions there, but things are tightening up in Australia due to the downturn in manufacturing. First I'd make absolutely sure your "permanent" visa is still intact. Then I'd checkout the governments website: wwwdotimmidotgovdotau/living-in-australia/settle-in-australia/

Lots of changes happening, might be a good idea to locate an immigration consultant to make sure of the facts first: Try the webform here - wwwdotglobalvisasdotcom/
