In case you haven’t heard, a New York judge ordered that a Wife could serve her Husband on Facebook with her divorce documents.  This was only done after the Wife could show that she had no other way to serve Husband, as he had no physical address, did not work, and even though Wife hired several private investigators, they were all unable to locate Husband for service.

It might just be a matter of time before California judges allow service of legal documents via Facebook or other social media. To read more about this in the New York Daily News, you can click on the link here.

I would love to hear what anyone thinks about service on social media, the pros and the cons

    Interesting post. Allowing service by the method of social media is possible in California as Code of Civil Procedure section 413.30 states that a court may direct that the summons be served in a manner which is reasonably calculated to to give actual notice to the party to be served.
