1. no pension sharing in common law
2. The entitlement for spousal support is sometimes "compensatory", (when the party who asks from spousal support gave up a lot during the relationship, it seems this is not the case here) sometimes based on "needs and means", when one party after the separation has much less money than the other. the latter is almost automatic when the income difference is around/over 3x. Yours is less than 2x, so maybe a judge would find entitlement, it is far from automatic.
Calculate how much you would spend together on the lawyers fighting over this, and offer 1/3 of that money to the party which makes less money. Both of you saves a lot of money and the real winner will be your child.
