In Transnational Child Custody Cases, ‘Mirror Orders’ From Foreign Courts Ensure Welfare of Minor: Supreme Court

The Supreme Court applied the concept of ‘mirror order’ in a case involving transnational custody of a child. When a court allows the shifting of a child to a foreign country, it may impose a condition that the parent in the foreign jurisdiction should also obtain a similar order of custody for the child from a competent court there. Such an order is called a ‘mirror order’. This condition is imposed to ensure that the courts of the foreign jurisdiction are also put on notice regarding the matter and to ensure protection of the child.
