    Yes, it is his right to have contact, possibly supervised depending on level of abusiveness

    in some cases yes - in other cases no. Were the kids abused?

    There can be no black and white answer to gray situations.

    I guess this depends on how balanced they are around them. If this abusive nature was purely towards yourself (or whoever concerned) then they might be ok on their own with the kids, but if on collecting/ picking them up this abuse was likely to flare up due to you moving on in life (or whatever) then this would be damaging for children to see or be around.
    If this person lost their temper with the kids also or took their anger out on them in any way whatsoever, I would say no, as I would find it too difficult to trust the situation & I would feel the kids were better being kept in a secure & loving environment.

    Possibly, we don't know the nature of the abuse, every case is different.
    Websaver, you are being presumptious, there is no mention of the gender of the abuser, but you have presumed that it is male.  We don't know if this question relates to london55, or a friend, or if it is just an idea plucked out of the air.

    In my personal experience, yes, one who is abusive to his/her partner should still have contact with his/her children as, (& again, this is only MY experience and does not apply to everyone), the abuser is generally only abusive to their partner and never to their children.
    As many who have answered the question have said however, we don't have enough information to give an answer to this particular question if the asker wants specifics.
