Mo. § 167.020. A nighttime residence is fixed if it is permanent and unchanging. The nighttime residence will be considered regular if it is used on a routine or consistent basis (e.g. nightly) and it is adequate if it is sufficient for meeting both the physical and psychological needs typically met in the home environment.
