mirror orders
ordens recíprocas (mirror orders)


In the UK, after a divorce, where permission is granted to one parent to take a child
out of England and Wales for the purposes of contact, especially to a non-Hague Convention
country, the court may make the order conditional upon the parent obtaining a
Mirror Order in the destination state. This term does not exist in the Portuguese system,
so the explanation that it is a reciprocal order by letter rogatory is a better solution.

ordem com jurisdição multilateral ("mirror orders")

Exemplos de texto extraidos de um guia da HCCH:
"find out whether measures of protection taken by the court in the requested State to protect the child (and, if necessary, the taking parent) can be recognised, and if necessary enforced,137 in the requesting State, or a mirror order can be issued;"

"Competent authorities seized with an application for return have made increasing use of protective measures, including those implemented in the foreign jurisdiction through, for example, mirror orders or safe harbour orders,146 to secure the prompt and safe return of a child.A protective measure may also consist, for example, in an undertaking offered and complied with voluntarily by the left-behind parent (which should, however, be used with caution unless it can be made enforceable in the requesting State, e.g., by way of a consent order which is then “mirrored” in the other jurisdiction) or one that is imposed by the court as a condition precedent to the return (sometimes called a “condition” or “stipulation”)."

Seria uma ordem que automaticamente tem o mesmo valor legal em outros países. Por exemplo, a Convenção de Haia de 1996 estabelece q um país pode emitir uma ordem q deve valer em outro país sobre questoes de protecao a criança.

"reciproco" é mais ligado a troca mutua, n é o caso
