In New York you can get divorced through Facebook

April 7, 2015

One more use for the most popular social network on the planet: send divorce papers. A court in the Big Apple has ruled that it is legally acceptable to submit an application for divorce between spouses through this medium.

It is not the first time that a court in the United States has allowed Facebook to be used as a legal means of communication, something that has been allowed on several occasions since 2013 although always on a supplementary basis, but this time the plaintiff has requested that Facebook be the primary method of communication with your future ex-husband.

This situation has been reached because the couple, whose relationship broke up years ago, never lived together and in recent times they have only maintained contact through phone calls and through Facebook, without also having evidence of a physical address of the defendant, dating from 2011 the last known whereabouts of the contracting party, making it impossible to deliver the divorce application documents.
