Spouse visa(subclass 309), financial requirement and AoS

I am an Australian citizen and married my Nepali girlfriend who is
residing in Nepal. We got married and gave birth of a child. Just to
let you know I've just got the citizenship 1 month after her birth.
Now I want to bring them in Australia. Unfortunately I am unemployed
for about 14 months. I can arrange assurance of support from my
friends here in Australia. I've several questions regarding these

1. Though I am unemployed for 14 months,I did not apply for centrelink
support. Does it have any affect on the visa application? Is it okay
to apply for centrelink support for being unemployed?

2. Regarding the child. She is only 1 month old. Do I need to apply
for her separately paying visa application fee (about $1700 if applied
overseas) or one application fee for my spouse covers her as well?

You should have a thorough read of Partner Visa: Offshore Temporary and Permanent (Subclasses 309 and 100) , all sections including links and Booklet #1.
Being married and having a child may likely see your Wife's visa granted as long as there is proper documentation despite being unemployed for 14 months and yes it would include the baby declared as a dependant.

Obviously, an employment history would be in your favour for the very first thing that may be asked is just how you've survived these past 14 months and how will you support a wife and child!

Friends may be accepted as an AoS but really up to DIAC and no security deposit that I'me aware of and it'll be the social security people who decide on a DIAC accepted person being appropriate for AoS.

The application fee for a partner visa done overseas is as you say about $1700, medical and police check costs on top of that.
