If you mean your father was unobservant in private but you grew up in a frum home, then regardless of your father's personal indiscretions, your Minhaigm are Ashkenaz. If you are a Baal Teshuva, the Chazon Ish ruled that Baaeli Teshuva should keep the Minhagim of the group that was Mekarev you, such as your Yeshiva, for example.
