Work with your attorney to argue that supervised visitation, at most, is in the best interest of the children. If you don't have an attorney, consult with one and secure some professional help. If the only case open is the restraining order case, the court may also hear your request there. If there is no order for visitation currently in effect, he may have to file and or open a case to have the court decide same.See question

My father signed an agreement in my absence when I was told it would be a flat 30% fee which I understood to include expenses. Is he able to switch lawyers? Is a lower percentage unreasonable to expect?
Unless you are acting on behalf of your father, the decision is his. If he wishes to seek another specialist in this area, he is free to do so. He will likely be advised that there will be a lien from the first attorney that will have to be resolved. SO, if he has no reason to doubt his attorneys competency excepting your concerns about the contingency compensation agreement, he may do well to continue with them. If they are not successful, they will not be paid.See question
