You can and should get an attorney. The facts of your case are compelling, but they need to be told to the judge in a way that incorporates the legal tenants involved in child custody. You are entitled to parenting time with your children. You should talk with an attorney about what your goals are in terms of parenting time and custody, and then devise a strategy to meet those goals. Most attorneys, including myself, offer free consultations. 612-206-3722.
I agree with counsel. You should get a lawyer to help you start a case to get custody and parenting time rights so mother cannot just decide your access for you.

Immediately hire a family attorney and initiate a custody motion to have it transferred to you. I'll be honest, that will be a tough case since, by law, you need to prove actual endangerment to the children in order to get custody transferred. You can certainly get more parenting time, but that would be the fallback position, in my opinion.
