San Diego Divorce Lawyer Serves Divorce Papers on Facebook

San Diego Divorce Lawyer Serves divorce Papers on Facebook – Legal Family Law First in California.


There is nothing so messy as a good divorce! So, when it comes to serving the divorce papers, good luck finding your other half! They may either not want to be found, or else, as was the case with leading San Diego Divorce Lawyer Paul Staley’s client in December 2012, they may have left the country (in this case twenty years ago).

Until recently this would have been a recipe for an expensive trip to a foreign land to serve the papers in a divorce . But in a move worthy of the fast moving communications of the 21st Century, Staley went ahead and found his clients other half on Facebook, and then petitioned the San Diego California Courts to serve the divorce papers on Facebook.

A petition that was duly granted, as was the divorce.

It is believed that this is a legal first in California, and looks set to create a precedent that could have far reaching implications for how court papers are served.

San Diego Divorce lawyer Paul Staley had this to modestly say about the pioneering breakthrough that he has pushed through the California Court system: “People are depending less on newsprint and more on electronic media for information. This is a trend that is only going to develop, because the courts are finally starting to acknowledge that serving papers electronically is simply the most reliable way to ensure that the defendant gets actual notice of the legal proceedings. My goal is always to limit my clients stress and get the right result with a minimum of fuss, and I believe this is a good step on the road to achieving that.”

This is just the latest in a long list of successes that San Diego Divorce Lawyer Staley has achieved since setting up in practice. Among his peers Staley is renowned for his unconventional methods that get results in the legal system.

When asked about his work as a leading San Diego Divorce Lawyer, Paul Staley makes it clear that going into bat for his clients is more than just a series of legal maneuvers. It is about really understanding the situations that have led up to the need for a divorce, and appreciating that where there is a divorce there are real people involved with real emotions, children, financial implications.

For San Diego Divorce Lawyer Staley then this is primarily a people business and his goal is no less than to transform the lives of his clients for the better. Be that through pioneering legal maneuvers, like his Facebook triumph, that save his clients’ money, hassle and time. Or more mundane, but equally important reassuring face to face meetings that make sure his clients know they have a big-hitter on the team.
