You will want to verify directly with the SSA for this. However, assuming you're receiving "standard" disability benefits (not SSI), I do not believe the child's benefit would be impacted by this.

However, if you're receiving SSI, the new income imputed to your ex-wife may affect your benefit.

Also, to be on the safe side, you'll want to ensure you provide more than half the support for the child to ensure the child is your dependent -- not your ex-wife's dependent.
