Hi, I hope somebody can give me an idea what to do...

We have a 2 years old child and I’m wondering if I can take her to the interview with us.

Do you think it's bad idea to bring kid to the interview?

Has anyone done this before?

Thank you

London only require children age 14 and up to attend the interview. You may be in for a long wait at the embassy so best not take your little one with you unless it's absolutely necessary. :)

Hi kaeruureak.

NEver done this before, but in my opinion, if you think your child's gonna behave, it's fine. If it were me, I might not have to, coz my daughter can be so demanding at times. You want some quiet time with the officer.

I believe a similar question to this one has been asked before. From what I remember, many of the responses seemed to indicate that if you can handle bringing your child it might be a good idea, because he/she will serve as great proof of your "legitimate marriage". But it's certainly your decision. Good luck!!!
