Child visitation rights

My children are teenagers who have not had much contact with their biological father. The only way that he will pay child support is if it is deducted from his pay check. My kids have no desire to see him. He told them that they have no choice because he pays for them every month. He is aware that my son has asthma but he continues to smoke in his presence. My daughter has also found drug paraphernalia in his apartment. I have a protective order in place against him for myself. Is there a specific age that the children have a choice to decide if they want to visit or do I have to force them to go with him? I know that they can decide who they want to live with but does that also apply to visitation?
