If it is the only option to see them, could you recruit a family member to go with you as a witness just to be on the safe side?

arabian will become famous soon enough

The mother is seeking sole custody. I think if he plays into her game he will help her as she could simply state "you, yourself know that the girls are terrified of going to your place as you agreed to visit them only at their home at Christmas."

People who alienate children from other parent are devious and will go to great lengths to manipulate the other parent. I think the poster would be wise to think through carefully anything he does with an eye on how it could play out in the future.

"Parental alienation syndrome is when one parent is targeted with a campaign of hatred by the other parent and uses the child as a vehicle for his or her hostile agenda. Many psychologists call this kind of affective manipulation child abuse...."

and article goes on to say:

..."Sometimes the alienating parent more deliberately turns a child against the other through coercive techniques, pressuring the child to withhold affection, to choose living with one over the other..."

and goes on to advise:

"...The target parent should also not allow the child and one’s ex to dictate the terms of contact between you and the child...."

Nothing you can do on your own without court order.

otherwise nothing going to change
