Should I allow him back into their lives?

I need some advice. I was with my kids father for five years. During that time he constantly cheated on me and was emotionally abusive. Six months ago I found out that he was cheating on me yet again with another girl. I realized that he was never going to change so I decided to break up with him. I didn't want the breakup to affect his relationship with the kids so made an effort to reach out to him and his family to let them know that they were still welcome to be apart of the kids lives. The kids father chose not to many effort to contact the kids whatsoever,he acted like they didn't exist. Now him and his girlfriend have broken up so he just realized that he does have kids. I don't mind him being in their lives but I am afraid that he will start neglecting them again once he starts dating someone again. Any thoughts on how I should handle this situation.

First thing I would do is get a court order for visitation and child support. It's not about the money, it's about the responsibility to the children. It would giv them some consistency and if he chooses not to see them on his days than you could contact his family to see if they want to.
