Unless she is told by a judge she needs to go back to work at that income she doesnt have to. You were the one working. That set the status quo. If you turned around and said screw it Im quitting she would then file an application for support and they would average out your last three years. You would need to argue successfully to reduce and impute an income to her. She could argue that she has been out of the workforce long enough to not get that income. The two of you would spend tens of thousands of dollars on a legal fight.

Unless you are willing to fight this for years in court, none of the arguments work. You make a high income, you pay accordingly. If you were concerned you should have quit your job BEFORE you separated AND made her go back to work immediately after the one year mat leave.
