Domestic violence is a factor in Family Code section 4320 Spousal support:
"(i) Documented evidence of any history of domestic violence, as defined in Section 6211, between the parties, including, but not limited to, consideration of emotional distress resulting from

If your landlord required all of that rent up front, then that's a problem. If you just chose to pay it all up front, that's a different issue. But it seems your main concern is the security deposit and how much can be charged for security. For most units, (unfurnished rentals), the total amount that the landlord requires as security can be up to the amount of two months' rent. If you have a waterbed, the total amount allowed as security can be up to two and-a-half times the monthly rent.
I wish I could give you better news on this, but if your boy was in the home (anywhere in the home) then the domestic violence will be considered to have happened "in front of him." Even of he can't see it, he can hear it, he can feel the tension, he knows his parents are upset....

If she hasn't done so, she needs to start - and you need to assert your right to notice and an opportunity to comply. You should not have to continue the constant court battle.
The court is supposed to send yearly guardianship status update forms to your address (GC 251). I advise you to consult with an attorney, or a grandparent's rights clinic, in your area.
As to the question of whether court-ordered supervision is best for your grandson, this is a question better answered by a mental health professional. It sounds like you really love this little guy - he is lucky to have you.
A case Status conference is like an administrative check-in. The court wants to know whether you are moving forward, whether you need assistance and/or discovery, and (generally for attorneys) whether you will need settlement conference and/or trial dates. In some courthouses, volunteer attorneys are available for (very brief) assistance in determining next steps/paperwork. In general, local forms are available on the court's website for you to complete, serve and file.
