Divorce Service via Facebook?

In Ohio, in order to proceed on a divorce complaint, a party needs to be served with the complaint.  Proof of service, via personal service, certified mail, or sheriff must be filed with the Court and then service is considered “perfected”.

In New York, a Judge recently ruled a woman could serve her difficult to locate husband through Facebook (please see link below).  With the advent of social media, the law on how service can be perfected may soon change.
