Yes you have right of visitation i.e. to visit your children and you can file a petition for their custody to be given to you as well.

Assuming you are Hindus

As under the the Hindu Minority and Guardianship Act, the ‘natural guardian of a Hindu minor, in respect of the minor’s person as well as in respect of the minor’s property in the case of a boy or unmarried girl is the father, and after him, the mother. 

It is provided that the custody of a minor who has not completed the age of five years shall ordinarily be with the mother.

So if your children are below the age of 5 years then it might be difficult for you to get their custody but you can always have visitation rights.
