189 dependent visa after visa is granted for main applicant

Hi all,

Hope you are doing well. This is to get your piece of advise and knowledge regarding two of the below matters:

Background - I am 39 years, and am currently in a defacto relationship with my partner since January 2017. We have also been living together since then till date. We both are skilled - my partner in IT and myself in Accounts. We both applied for EOI based on our skills and claimed each other's 5 points too for partner skill points. My partner got invitation in December 2018 and lodged PR application in Feb 2019 and 189 visa was granted in July 2019. I have been addressed as a defacto partner on my partner's 189 application, however I intended to gain my PR on my own skilled visa and did not want to apply as a 189 dependent then. My partner wishes me to add me as 189 dependent. However, I still want to see if it is possible with currently 80 points waiting since Feb 2019.

Query no. 1: 1. Will I be losing my 5 partner skill points from EOI as my partner is now a Australian PR? Or will I still be able to claim that? (That will make me as 75 points *)

Query no. 2: Can I add myself now as a 189 dependent after my partner's visa application is already been granted?*(Considering Accountants have a long waiting queue, i will be turning 40 by next July (and will lose points for my age)*and my 485 visa is about to expire in March 2020)

Your advise and guidance will be very crucial for my further visa and life.*

Kind regards

It is not easy to decipher your post.
If partner points were granted, you must have applied for the same visa as your partner. If you were granted a visa, why do you want to apply for another one?
