Are separate rooms required for parents and children?

Home More advice Parents & Family

A dear friend of mine shares a room with her daughter, and is about to move into an apartment. Now that she's contemplating this move, she's wondering whether or not she can get a one bedroom apartment, or if she needs to get a two bedroom for legal purposes. I have no idea what to tell her, and googling the question doesn't get me very far. If anyone knows if separate bedrooms are required for parents and children (the parent is a woman, aged twenty-two and her daughter is two years old, about to turn three). If anyone has any information as to whether or not this is okay in the eyes of the law, I would really appreciate it! Thanks!
