Family consultants may be required to supervise or assist compliance with parenting orders

  (1)   If a court makes a parenting order in relation to a child, the court may also, subject to subsection   (2), make either or both of the following orders:

  (a)   an order requiring compliance with the parenting order, as far as practicable, to be supervised by a family consultant;

  (b)   an order requiring a family consultant to give any party to the parenting order such assistance as is reasonably requested by that party in relation to compliance with, and the carrying out of, the parenting order.

  (2)   In deciding whether to make a particular order under subsection   (1) in relation to a child, a court must regard the best interests of the child as the paramount consideration.
