Has he court entered an order yet regarding custody and visitation? Does he have a lawyer and have they actually filed for divorce yet?
Unfortunately, in Texas the only restriction that is in place is what is imposed by a court order. While each parent has equal rights to the children, there is no way to enforce it without going to court. Anytime there is a divorce there always needs to be a custody and visitation plan set out specifically and signed by the judge. Likely it will also result in child support being ordered but that's the way it works.
There is absolutely no way to force her to allow him to see the children at all without a court order in place.
