  • Probably yes. The courts are strongly biased in favor of trying to normalize relationships between children and their parents. The judge is likely to see this as "dad had an awakening, and wants to make up for lost time" -- something which may be true, and is potentially helpful to the children's development and nurturing. Unless dad does something terrible in court, or your mother makes a very compelling argument for how dangerous he is, he is likely to be awarded visitation rights. You might want to give him a second chance yourself, in fact.
  • Yes, if that's what the court rules. If he is taking care of what he needs to take care of, not a violent criminal or extremely mentally ill they would most likely decide that he does in fact get visitation. They would only withhold that if they feared for the children's safety.
