I know that it is very hard for you to deal with his coming and it must be very disruptive to you and the new routine that you are trying to put in place with the children.  But it is just as difficult for him as well. Be that as it may, I am sure that the "every Thursday" provision is part of a Court order, correct?   Then he is in violation of the court order and you can go back to court to hold him in contempt and have him thrown in jail or comply. Otherwise, I would suggest that you find a mutual friend or relative of his that you are still on friendly terms with and ask that they intervene.  Explain that it is difficult for the children to adjust to the situation if he continues to come every day and harder for them when he leaves.  Appeal to the side of him that obviously loves your children.  And remember that they had no say in this divorce.  They are merely innocent by standers.  Good luck.
