5 Points from Spouse


I am very new to the forum, i did go through the threads to find the answer but was unable to find one.

My query is

That my wife will be applying as primary applicant as she is a software engineer with 3.10 years of experience and assuming that she gets 7 Points, her total points will add up to 60.

I have a total of 5.6 years of experience in software Testing and masters degree in Information technology.

Please could any one let me know if i will be able to get 5 points although my
skills and nature of job does not fall in SOL1.

If i am able to get 5 points please let me know if i have to go through the ACS by paying $400 extra or is there any process of getting both main applicant and spouse occupation accessed at the same time.

This is what is needed to claim 5 points for partner skills:

Evidence to attach to your application
For you to be awarded points, you must provide documentary evidence that your partner has met all the basic requirements for the particular General Skilled Migration visa that you are applying for.
This evidence should include:
- a positive skills assessment from the relevant assessing authority for their nominated occupation (nominated occupation is to be on the same version of the SOL as the main applicant)
- evidence of age to confirm that they are under 50 years of age
- evidence of competent English language level
- evidence of one of the following:
-- that they meet the Australian study requirement in the last six months before applying OR
-- that they have been employed in a skilled occupation for a period totalling at least 12 months in the last 24 months before applying.

I don't think you can combine an application for skills assessment, it's a matter of individual assessment, but I could be wrong
