A good start would be to stop focusing the blame on your wife and children and start accepting responsibility for the consequences of your own behaviour. Children need reassurance that they are loved by both parents and should only be told what information they need to know about their parents'' relationship breakdown. Parents are under a duty to shield children as much as possible from the conflict in these cases. "Harm" to children is not just physical violence or deprivation. It includes emotional harm and there is little more damaging emotionally than upsetting a child''s security about their parentage and heritage.
IF you are willing to acknowledge the part you played in bringing about you own alienation and are prepared to do whatever it takes to make amends you may be lucky just to rescue the relationship with your middle child and prevent a breakdown of the relationship with the youngest child. Parenting classes for separated parents might help. Under the circumstances I would forget about contact with your new partner present for the forseeable future and concentrate on rebuilding your relationship with your child(ren). Generally courts are support contact but there is only so much a court order can achieve.
