Do I have to respond to a divorce summon in order for the court to not decide unilaterally regarding spousal support, property distribution, separation date, and the continuation/ceasing of spousl support upon common law (living together) relationship with person of any sex? Also can the petitioner amend the summons to change the joint custody of the kids? Also the petitioner checked the box requesting termination of the court's jurisdiction to award spousal support to respondent. Should this be a concern? I make more than the petitioner at this time. Petitioner also checked child visitation to respondent, whereas the box for petitioner child visitation is not checked. Any concern here?
