I found a video of someone looking for my exwifes boyfriend because he owes a lot of money to a several people. One of them says he will find him and get his money. She gets my daughter every other weekend. I feel it is very dangerous for my child to be around this. Can I refuse visitation?
You 'found' a video? Really?
You cannot refuse visitation based on this alone. However, you CAN file a motion with the court to temporarily modify the order.

You need to meet in person with a family law attorney in your county. Look on this website and call around since we are not allowed by this website to make any suggestions.
The burden is on you as to why visitation should be changed. One hurdle you have is proving the "video" is legitimate and not altered in any way - quite frankly, it's not easy to get digitized internet info entered into evidence in a court of law since it's so easy to "alter".

Talk to and with your ex. Chances are very high that the child's safety is important to her too.
You can ask the court to modify the orders. Hire a lawyer and file a petition.
