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.
