Does an adult child living at home have rights in a divorce?

With many young adults being unable to afford to rent or purchase their first home, more and more adult children are remaining at home with their parents. What happens if their parents are divorcing? An adult child living at home typically does not have significant rights in a divorce. The law does not impose an ongoing obligation on parents to maintain their adult child or provide a home for them beyond the age of 18, except in specific circumstances such as when the child has a disability and cannot live independently, or remains in education.
