10 years ago my father had an affair, with my current girlfriends

Customer Question

10 years ago my father had an affair, with my current girlfriends mother. This came to light two years ago. He is now leaving the family home, leaving my mother unable to pay the mortgage and making her unemployed as she works from home. What are her rights, she is still in love and wants to give him everything to make him happy. I'm afraid it will leave her with nothing.
