Our expert says:
You are divorced, and he must try to be a man about this and to take full responsibility for his choices and actions. Sounds like he has a drinking problem, for which he should see a proper shrink working in that field, and get proper treatment for it, and avoid troubling you or your daughter with his bad habits.
If you fel there is good eason to be con cerned about your daughter's safety, due to his drunken behaviours, you would be entitled to withhold her visits to him until he has completed some proper treatment and is stable again.
If her visits to him are simply an agreement between the pair of you, you can decide and enforce this without much likelihood that he will be foolish enough to go to court to try to challenge this, especially if he can regain contact by getting the treatment he needs.
If the isits were decided by the divorce court, you may want to consult a lawyer and see whether it would be wise to approach the court and ask for this limitation to be officially recognized.
Talking it over with him may not be productive, though informing him that you look forward to aranging further visits for your daughter AFTER he has received effective treatment, may be something you'd want to inform him about, when he is sobre.
