Divorce with Facebook

Manhattan Supreme Court in New York(USA) has ruled that a married woman can change her Facebook status to “single” on Facebook and can serve her divorce papers through the social networking site.

According to media Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Matthew Cooper “is allowing a nurse named Ellanora Baidoo to serve her elusive husband with divorce papers via a Facebook message”.

Apparently, Baidoo’s husband is missing in action and in the past it has proven almost impossible to reach him. This makes it hard for the lawyer of the woman to contact her husband and give him the divorce papers.

In the order, the Judge reportedly wrote that Baidoo “is granted permission (to) serve defendant with the divorce summons using a private message through Facebook,” with her lawyer messaging Victor Sena Blood-Dzraku — the husband of the women — through her account.

“This transmittal shall be repeated by plaintiff’s attorney to defendant once a week for three consecutive weeks or until acknowledged by her hard-to-find hubby,” the judge reportedly said. “Post office has no forwarding address for him (the husband), there is no billing address linked to his prepaid cell phone, and the Department of Motor Vehicles has no record of him.”

Can a Man do the same thing…? Common man exclaimed.
