Your mother should file complaint under Domestic Violence Act and claim right to stay in matrimonial home or alternative accommodation. She should also seek maintenance from her husband. She should also seek compensation for mental torture she has undergone. You are also entitled to maintenance from your father. Contact a local lawyer and make application under DV act.
