This is general information and not legal advice. No attorney-client relationship is formed. This is for educational purposes only.

You are in the clear. The children's father can take you to court, but that doesn't mean he'll prevail. Visitation as agreed upon by the parties means visitation cannot happen unless you agree.

When a father no shows 8 of 9 visit opportunities and expresses hostility, he is hurting his children, and showing irresponsible parenting skills.

As you know, his videos of rape and bondage with dolls is a clear risk signal that his deviance could be acted out against your children.

You have not violated a court order and you are not denying his rights.

You will have an opportunity to present your concerns to the court. You may want to ask the court to order professionally supervised visitation only, paid by the father.

Are you comfortable using your local court forms and any self-help facilities your jurisdiction offers?
