Can you explain what you mean by your BF made a mistake?
How does this affect any court ordered visitation schedule?
Ok, if he had been drinking but there was nothing pursued in court to stop any visitation rights, then the mother can't arbitrarily decide that he doesn't get to see the children. If she has a concern, then she would have to take it up with the judge that put the order in place.
However, if she refuses to deliver the children as the order states, then his recourse is to file a motion for contempt of court with the judge who entered the order. This will force the mother to appear in front of the judge and explain why she is willfully violating the judge's order. The judge can penalize her by amending the order to give him more time to make up for any lost time as well as threatening to put her in jail for contempt for future violations.
