You can run, but you can’t hide: at least this is the case for Victor Sena Blood-Dzraku. A Brooklyn judge made a landmark ruling allowing Ellanora Baidoo to serve her husband with divorce papers via facebook!
The NYdaily news reported, “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.”
Baidoo and her husband are from Ghana and married in 2009 in a civil ceremony, but never consummated the marriage. According to Andrew Spinnell , Baidoo’s lawyer, “their relationship crumbled when Blood-Dzraku reneged on his promise to have a traditional Ghanaian wedding ceremony as well.”
Despite the fact that the couple never lived together, Victor Blood-Dzraku did not want to divorce. He made it impossible for his wife to serve him with divorce papers.
According to the Judge in the case, Victor Blood-Dzraku was nowhere to be found, he had no address, job, or forwarding address. “He kept in touch with his wife by phone and Facebook — but that was it, the ruling says.”
Last week the first facebook divorce summons message was sent.
