No. A mother has no such power. Only a court can deny visitation rights of a father. During a marriage both parents have equal rights concerning the child. If she wants to stop visits with the father she must petition the court and provide compelling evidence that it is in the best interest of the children. The court will investigate and review the situation and render a decision.

If the court issued a visitation schedule then the mother has visitation rights. She has no parental rights if the grandparents were appointed legal guardians.If the court issued a visitation schedule then the mother has visitation rights.

The father might seek visitation and/or custody.
