Removing A wall
 
If I remove a non load bearing wall which currently connects two load bearing walls do I need to be concerned about the load points?

Typically,no---a drawing of the layout will help.

if u r sure it is non-load bearing, then i think you've answered your question. what's to worry?

if its definitely just a partition theres nothing structural to worry about. you just have to patch the drywall and flooring where the wall was removed

That logic is quite sound...
