Which visit visa after 309/100 application?

Hello everyone.

My partner and I applied for our 309/100 visa this May. We received an email to submit Form 888, Police certificate and Medical in early July, which we provided within the requested 28 day period. The IMMI status changed like this:
Submitted > Received > Initial assessment > further assessment.

I have two questions:

01) We have been married for nine years and been together for ten years now. We applied twice and got refused both times, one in 2010 and another in 2012, both times we could not produce some requested documents, due to delays on my part and the agencies. After that, we decided not to be bothered with it anymore, and my partner migrated to my country for a few years, she had to leave back due to our daughter not being able to cope with the new environment (advice of child psychologist). My daughter and wife have permanent residency status in my country. We have almost five years when we were not living together in the same country, but we have stayed in touch, and I have stayed well connected with our daughter, who is now eight years old. This year we decided to do it again, and we have furnished all the documents, took a while to do so, but we managed. Now my question is our case complex with a higher chance of rejection?

02) As the visa processing times have spread beyond a joke; we would like to meet in Australia for a month, to celebrate our tenth anniversary. Which visa should we apply for, tourist stream or family sponsored one?

Thank you, everyone.

1 - Yes, the less evidence and the more time spent apart the moe questions that will be raised, especially with prior refusals. That's not to say it wont get granted but you would be well advised to ensure you have a strong application.

2 - I would apply for the tourist stream, but that's just me.

To put the cart before the horse, you lodge an application and then seek advice.

Do yourself a favour and contact a good Registered Migration Agent pref an Australian based one.

If you have blown 2 applications before do you honestly think living apart for 5 years won't be a very big factor in this application?

Thank you, everyone, for your kind answers.

The last visas where refused because we could not procure some important documents, e.g., in the first instance I could not get police clearance and few other documents, and if I'm being honest with myself, it was my laziness to follow through with it. In the second instance, we did hire an "agent" but we kept losing documents in the posts, as I was overseas, call it a bad luck or something, as in 2011, it was a paper application.
