You cannot control the order in which paths are drawn in live trace, btu you can reorfer paths in the layers palette of illustrator.

First you want to expand your live trace. Teh you watn to create new layers in your layers palette,a dn I sugegst naming them to help avoid confusion. Everytihng is now on your layer 1, adn you want to ungroup everyhting. Teh you can slect individual paths. Once you have te paths slected you will see the layers palette has a bullet point next to the layername that contains the object, drag that bullet point to the layer you want that art to be on. Once you have moved the tiems to layers, you can thn import thsi into after effects as choose the option to preserve layers adn you will get a layered comp you can animate. If you want to animate the bezier points, you may want to copy those form ilustaor and paste them into after effects (since i dont believe after effects has an expand command).
