Well, you should know that under current New York law, your spouse can divorce you without your consent, and even without your participation.
If your goal is to put a stop to a divorce that your spouse has begun, you have very few options to achieve that, and no legal route to prevent the divorce from ultimately being approved.
If you feel that time will help resolve the issue, then it will benefit you to respond to your summons and notification.
Only through participation in the process can you affect the timeline in a meaningful way.
Failure to respond will ultimately have you found in default by the court, and your spouse can proceed with a default divorce.
When you work with an experienced Queens divorce attorney, you can pace events to your liking and make the divorce work for you.
