Need to add my wife to my application for visa 485

Hi all,
I submitted my 485 visa application a couple of months ago and the visa has not been granted yet. I got a bridge visa. My wife has a student visa in Australia and I added her as a family member but she was not included in my original application. I didn’t add her for some reasons. Now I would like to add her to my application because her student visa will expire next month. Can I add her to my original application as a dependent while I am still waiting the approval? If yes, how can I do that and which form should I fill? Also, if yes, will she get a bridge visa as well ? Please help me I am confused!

No, you can't add her now. Was she declared as your wife in the application?

Thank you for your answer. I added her as a partner in the application and chose the option that I will add her later to the application.

The immigration department told me to do the following:
Item 1229(1) of Schedule 1 to the Migration Regulations 1994 requires applicants to make their application on Form 1409 or Form 1276 Internet, the forms specified by the Minister in an instrument in writing for Item 1229(1).

But I am not sure because the form 1409 should be used if I already have been granted the visa.

That's correct, you can only add her once your visa is granted. It may make sense to get some professional help to understand the options that she has available to her.
