    When will you come back?

    In the condition sentence, for example,
    1. When will you back home?

    2. When you back home?

    P.S I'm waiting my family back home, which one is suitable for these situation?

    Re: When will you come back?

    Neither sentence is correct.

    1. When will you be/get back home?
    2. When are you due back home?

    The first is the more natural of the two.

    I assume you mean "conditional", not "condition" but neither of those questions are in the conditional.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: When will you come back?

    I'm waiting my family back home.

    You have to write either awaiting or waiting for my family. "Awaiting" is rather formal and old-fashioned, at least in AmE.
