74 Order for provision of support services

(1) The Children's Court may make an order directing a person or organisation named in the order to provide support for a child or young person (other than a child or young person the subject of an application for a guardianship order, or a proposed guardianship order by consent pursuant to section 38) for such period (not exceeding 12 months) as is specified in the order.
(2) The Children's Court must not make an order under this section unless:
(a) it gives notice of its intention to consider making the order to the person or organisation who would be required to provide support pursuant to such an order, and
(b) the person or organisation is given an opportunity to appear and be heard by the Children's Court before the Children's Court makes such an order, and
(c) the person or organisation consents to the making of the order, and
(d) the views of the child or young person in relation to the proposed order have been taken into account.
(3) The Secretary may be required to provide support pursuant to an order made under this section.
Note : The parents of a child or young person cannot be compelled to accept the provision of support services, particularly if the services relate to the parents rather than to the child or young person.
