Thanks for the additional information.
She is not automatically entitled to spousal support. This is something she would have to apply for. Spousal maintenance is however means assessed, meaning, it is dependent on whether she is not working and unable to maintain a certain standard of living. Technically, you too can asked to be maintained if she earns and is a higher earner.
The above being said, I would recommend that you do not make any further payments until she applies to the court and obtains an order to that effect. This is however unless you would like to do so.
With respect to the children, as they were of the marriage, she could apply for maintenance. However, you are only required to pay maintenance for children over the age of 18, up to the age of 20 if they are in full time education.
