US citizen looking for work visa

I have read and understand most of the requirements to obtain a working visa as a US citizen. However, I was wondering if there is a three or six month working visa since I will not be needing 12 months. (?)

In addition, with regards to the bank statement, would I be able to show my girlfriend or her family as sponsors (she is a citizen and her family lives in Perth)? I have been traveling for nearly 9 months and my funds are insufficient according to the information given on the immigration website.

Thanks so much!

There are no shorter WHVs if that is what you are looking at but just because you get one for a year does not mean you cannot leave earlier.
As to funding, even a credit card account with a suitable balance may suffice but sponsorship does not really apply to a WHV.
