In Illinois, if a court finds that the visits would be in the best interests of the child, then yes.
Generally the noncustodial parent may move anywhere - within or outside the state where the children live. The court grants the noncustodial parent the right to visit the children but does not force the noncustodial parent to take advantage of that right. However, a court may require the noncustodial parent to provide the custodial parent with contact information and, where issues develop about the care or safety of the children, the court may require supervised visitation or at least that the noncustodial parent advise the custodial parent where the children will be.
The courts generally want to maximize the potential for the children to develop lasting, lifelong relationships with both parents while also considering the physical, mental, emotional, or moral health of the children. Restricted visitation means that the noncustodial parent's access to the child is restricted in some way. The specific restrictions will be outlined in the court order. It usually involves visitation with the child(ren) in the presence of the custodial parent or a hired visitation supervisor who is responsible for ensuring the safety of those involved.

The visitation order determines the time that the non custodial parent may have with the minor child/children.
There is no presumptive right of grandparent visitation in the United States. However, in several states, including Georgia, a grandparent can request visitation from the court. They can do this by either filing a petition for visitation or joining an existing custody/visitation case for the subject children. The court will not assume that it is in the child's best interest for the grandparents to have visitation with the children over the parent's objection-- rather, the grandparents must prove that this visitation is in the best interest of the children and further that it is harmful to them to be deprived of this visitation.

Maybe, if the absent parent does not share custody in any manner and there is not a visitation order in place, a custodial parent can take whatever action he or she chooses in regards to a minor child. However, courts do not look favorably upon any parent who does not allow the other parent to have a relationship with his or her minor child/children unless there is substantiated reasons (child abuse, endangerment, etc.) for the action.

It is the responsibility of all parents to protect their children from harm to the best of their ability. If there is an order of visitation in place, the custodial parent may withhold the non custodial parents right to such visitation if he or she believes it would place the child/children in a environment of endangerment. The parent may then petition the court to have the visitation order be amended (such as an order for supervised visitation) or rescinded if circumstances warrant. Please be advised, if the non custodial parent contests the issue of withholding visitation or the custodial parent files for a change of visitation, he or she must have substantiated evidence to uphold their allegations.
The father must return to court and file a motion for contempt if the mother does not comply with the visitation order.
