Look at it this way: If she isn't entitiled to spousal support, or if you are overpaying the amount, then she is receiving money she isn't entitled to. She is currently budgeting and making plans according to what she is receiving.

If/when a court decides, according to the facts and the law, that she isn't entitled to this amount, you will have put her into a difficult situation.

Unless you are ready, willing, and able to maintain her lifestyle indefinately, you are not doing her any favours by paying spousal support right now. You are more of a dick for leading her on.

You should also not jump to uninformed conclusions about what judge will think of you. You should also not presume that being a dick will deprive you of the right to a fair hearing based on facts.
