Greetings. I am truly sorry to hear about what your children and their friends had to go through. Yes, you have to still pay for half of the visits until you go to court and the judge says otherwise. You really need to hire an attorney, so that he cannot get overnights and so that you can make him pay for the visits, if the judge will still let him see them. He also needs to go to court ordered counseling if you ask me and have a psychiatric evaluation before the court makes any further decisions regarding visitation or custody. Best of luck.
