How can I obtain a state sponsorship?

Hi everyone, hope somebody can help with this...
I'm trying to start a visa application to immigrate together with my husband, but I don't qualify as main applicant for skilled visa (I haven't been employed full time for the last 12 months) and my partner is a Business Consultant (ICT) and his occupation is not on on the skilled occupation list. We are thinking of obtaining a state sponsorship, but is there any chance we get a state sponsorship if none of us meets the occupation criterion? I should also mention that I have English teaching experience (12 months: 2006-2007) and Translator experience, but I haven't been employed in either occupation full time for the last 12 months (I've been an independent translator - self-employed since November 2008).
Any advice would be welcome, since we are just at the beginning and we may not understand every detail of the migration process.
Thanks!

The state sponsorship is the same as a skilled visa except that you have got a nomination from a state and that means less points are needed and if an occupation is on a State Migration Plan an application will get a higher priority in the queue.
Getting a state nomination means meeting more or less the same eligibility requirements as for the 175 non sponsorship visa, occupation on the SOL, 12 months experience within past two years, english ability and age and some states may in fact want you to have an employment offer.
Unfortunately right now most states may have their sponsorship applications closed whilst they get their State Migration Plans sorted and approved by the federal minister, and that possibly to be delayed seeing as we have an election scheduled for 21/8, Immigration quickly becoming an issue and so more changes possible in the future.
So for now I'd suggest you have a good read of all the relevant regs/info via Professionals and other Skilled Migrants - Workers - Visas & Immigration and you'll see various links to changes re priority processing etc. on the What's New link near top of that page.
Also follow the pages through to Skilled – Sponsored (Migrant) Visa (Subclass 176) and via the nomination by states/territories you'll find their information and though they may have a block on applications [ some may not ] you may be able to see what their requirements are for nomination.

If you use the link I put above for the 176 visa you'll find links to state sites and getting a state sponsorship is a separate application procss to applying for immigration so you also need to look at the eligibility and applying information for a 176 visa.
Lots of links for information and lots of reading needed.
