She probably has no idea what information is available to Immigration.
She seems not to care about your situation and the risk to your application. Just for what she wants, at no matter what cost to anyone else. And that is the base of my answer.
You say she is unemployed, no doubt getting Centrelink benefits and rent assistance. Immigration and Centrelink share a lot of info. Your partners name would be on the lease, and Centrelink would have that. Data sharing could throw up that name on an immigration application. Questions might then be asked, or just assumptions made.
