NOTICE—CANCELLATION OF RIGHTS: Dissolution or legal separation may automatically cancel the rights of a domestic partner
or spouse under the other domestic partner's or spouse's will, trust, retirement plan, power of attorney, pay-on-death bank account,
survivorship rights to any property owned in joint tenancy, and any other similar thing. It does not automatically cancel the right of a
domestic partner or spouse as beneficiary of the other partner's or spouse's life insurance policy. You should review these matters,
as well as any credit cards, other credit accounts, insurance polices, retirement plans, and credit reports, to determine whether they
should be changed or whether you should take any other actions. Some changes may require the agreement of your partner or
spouse or a court order.
NOTICE: You may redact (black out) social security numbers from any written material filed with the court in this case other than a
form used to collect child, spousal or partner support.
The original response must be filed in the court with proof of service of a copy on Petitioner.
