If you get the children into therapy the therapist can help to convince him that this is not good for the children. How long has it been since the separation?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
3 months

In addition to getting a therapist to assist you, ask your lawyer about a GAL for the children. The GAL will spell things out for him. he will have to go to a parenting class and they will also reinforce that you are right in your concerns.

Your question was about visitation rights and I have not answered it because it is a legal question. But it would be best to document all of your concerns for the court.
