Tourist or Family Sponsored? Advise needed

Hi, I am an Australian PR and been in Aussie for 4months. I would like my mom to come over in order to help assist with my children. I am not sure if we need to go the tourist or family sponsored route and I also saw something on evidence of sufficient funds. Will my mom have to show this or me? We are hoping she will spend at least 8-10months with us.

I will really appreciate any help i get as we are looking at her coming over over during this Christmas holidays.

The choice may depend on where she is coming from. If a low risk country then can apply for a tourist visa to visit family and request a 12 month visa. If she is from an high risk country the a family sponsored visa is a better option. Can again get for 12 months but will have a "no further stay" condition on it. When you apply for the visa state that it for family reunion.
