Permanent Resident ship queries

Hello All,
I have been in Australia for last 3 years, initially I was on student visa now I am on General skilled migration visa under sub class 485. This visa is going to expire in November of this year(2010). At present I am able to make 115 points to apply for Permanent Resident ship but I need 120 points to qualify. Can you assist me how can I arrange 5 points, I have few options but I am not sure whether they can be used or not.
• I got married recently, can I show her studies and experience to get 5 points, if yes, then what kind of certificate/diploma/degree is required and in which stream and how many years’ experience.
• Is there any other option for the extension of my visa except student visa like state sponsorship, regional area migration etc.
Your response would be appreciated.

All you can do is have a look at the points table - Skilled – Independent (Residence) Visa (Subclass 885) and points for a partner has certain requirements also.

You also need to check the eligibility requirements to have a partner on an 885 - Skilled - Independent (Residence) visa (subclass 885)

The other alternative would be to look at a regional/provisional or sponsored visa such as the 487 > 887 or the 886 or even see if you can find an employer to sponsor re the 457/ENS approach.
Visa Options – Professionals and other Skilled Migrants – Workers – Visas & Immigration

As far as state/territory sponsorship goes, you should also make yourself aware of the changes in regulations soon to be implemented as outlined in Minister's announcement on 08Feb. via the What's New Link you'll see on last page I linked.
If you have an occupation that has a low priority, it could be several years before a visa application is considered if ever, depending on numbers and priorities of other applications.
That could mean being on a bridging visa for many years and employers may not be keen to employ in that situation.

Hence the advantage of seeking employer sponsorship as soon as possible.
