    Yes, it's OK.

    In British English it would be more usual to use 'house' in American, I don't know.

    We could also just say "Are you at your mother's right now or are you home?"

    Thank you very much for your response.

    Actually they are staying at their mother's house. I want to know if they have got back (to their Place) or not. So will it be correct to say this?

    Are you still at your mother's [place] or are you back home now?

    (The word "place" is optional.)
