These are questions your lawyer should answer, not random people on the internet.

But anyway in general for #1 ... basically you need to pay her for the rest of her life or until she remarries.

Lawyer should know best, you should change a lawyer.

To my knowledge, your ex wife's lifestyle is affected by you divorcing her, she can and likely will get alimony from you likely. You really should talk to a competent lawyer with all the info like both your income, the monthly expenses, what you have been contributing during the marriage etc then they can advise you to contest or to settle.

That’s not a way to escape the WC, it just means that your ex wife decides not to ask for alimony

Her abusing behaviour only aids in divorce. Maintenance part you still hv to pay. Just a matter of how much. Good lawyers canít help you avoid this but can help you pay less. Get a gd lawyer for long term benefit.
