Floor Joist Size And Span......

The bending moment generated by offsetting the bearing wall 12 inches over from the main beam should be minimal. If your floor joists are 2x10's 16 inches on center, it is my opinion you should be ok. If you have 2x8's, then you might consider sistering additional joists at every other joist.
