I am about to sign an agreement that will give me 50%

I am about to sign an agreement that will give me 50% timeshare with my minor (14) daughter. I am 64 years old and am going to file for my SS benefits. I understand that my daughter is eligible for derivative benefits. My wife earns a substantial income and before we started this process she had agreed to pay $700/month to me for child support. Her attorney is now saying that her child support will be reduced dollar for dollar by the amount of derivative benefits my daughter receives. I am requesting that I become the representative payee for these funds (my benefits) and my wife won't sign that form unless I agree to eliminate her child support. Is this right? I thought the law was written to help the retired or disabled person if they had child support payments to make. Not the reverse. Please let me know.JA: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: CaliforniaJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: No I am pro per.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Well, there is an extreme disparity in our income and our ages.

My spouse has been emotionally and verbally abusive towards

My spouse has been emotionally and verbally abusive towards me. Name calling i.e. your an imbisil, asshole, you are not a man, you need to man-up, your a coward, and you need to grow a pair (referring to male anatomy.) Comments were made via voice and text message over the course of the marriage (1 year and 1 week). She attempted suicide on May 18th (second attempt) and was hospitalized for 72 hours. On May 18th I discovered text messages between her and another man (ex-boyfriend) where she asked him to meet her at the end of our street to "talk." That's when I decided that's enough, and moved out. I informed her via text that we both need to work on our own issues and attend counseling together with the hope of reconciliation. I also informed her by text that I would continue to pay her bills (mortgage, utilities, etc.) until she received a determination on disability retirement through the Federal Government. She's still a Federal employee but hasn't worked since July 2016. I also continued to cut the grass and do other yard maintenance at her residence, bring food for the animals and clean stalls etc. Last week she told me not to come and do that via text because she doesn't feel safe(no history of physical violence on either of our parts). Yes I physically left without informing her prior to my leaving, but my intention was to hopefully reconcile the marriage. I have a diagnosis of cyclothymia and anxiety disorder and she carries diagnoses of Multiple Sclerosis, major depressive disorder and alcohol use/abuse disorder for which she currently has an Interlock device on her car for a second time. My question is this: Does this constitute abandonment under North Carolina law and what is the best way to defend against any potential claim/suit for abandonment in a scenario like this.

My ex and I are trying to reach a new child support

My ex and I are trying to reach a new child support agreement now that I live much closer and have my daughter much more often. We used the online Indiana Child Support calculator and entered our information and according to that calculation, I should only have to pay about half of what I currently pay ($165/wk down to $80/wk). This seems like a drastic change so I am curious if a court will order such a drastic change in support payments or do they taper down or how do they handle that kind of change? I kind of understand my ex when she expresses concern on having to suddenly budget for such a drastic change but at the same time, I dont want to pay more than what the calculations say is a fair amount.
