In Noel B,* in a support proceeding, the court authorized substituted service of process by transmitting a digital copy of the summons and petition to respondent’s Facebook account, and then following up with a physical mailing to respondent’s last known address. The court ordered such service where petitioner, under oath, described his efforts to try to locate his former wife, including that he telephoned and sent text messages to his emancipated daughter and his son concerning respondent’s location, to which he received no response; conducted a Google search; and inquired of the occupant of respondent’s last known address, who advised that he was unaware where respondent could be located.

* 2014 N.Y. Misc. LEXIS 4708.
