Your mother may apply for a restraining order against him to stop the abuse. The order may also stipulate that he is confined to a ceratin area of the house. If your mother and father are married in community of property she may issue summons on the basis that your father forfeits his share in the house on account of the fact that he never contributed and that he will benefit unduly should they divorce. Best is to see an attorney.
