You can go to the police with supporting evidence of the abuse and/or you can go to social services. They will give you options to protect your daughter and her child. However if the child is no direct danger with her father there is no reason to keep her from seeing her father. All she needs is to be loved by him and be allowed to love him. The fact that he cannot keep a job is no reason to keep a child from seeing a parent. Only if she is in direct danger.
With what your daughter has gone through it is understandable that you wish him out of your lives for good, but it is important to keep the focus on what is in the best interest of the child and the parents dysfunctional relationship should be kept separate from the relationship your grand child should be allowed to have with both her parents.
The parents would benefit from attending some co-parenting coaching classes to reach an agreement on how to raise their precious daughter in the best possible way and sparing her from much un-necessary hurt.
