My mother applied for the visit visa application and an interview was conducted and the visa was finally rejected. Deputy negative and interview. Please guide me, how can I satisfy ECO that he grants the visa?
**Decision and reasons Letter**
"I have rejected your visit visa application because I am not satisfied that it meets the requirements of paragraph (s) V4.2 of Appendix V because:
To assess your intentions, I must consider your circumstances in Pakistan based on the information you have provided with your application. You declare that you intend to travel to the United Kingdom for 9 days to visit your child. I have recognized the importance of family visits and have carefully considered your request. I have considered the evidence provided and the written statements that you and your sponsor have made.
I noted that this request was initially rejected on 03/03/2019 and granted a reconsideration after a protocol letter was sent prior to the action. As part of this reconsideration process, he was asked to attend an interview.
I have reviewed the interview and the documents presented and I notice a series of inconsistencies that lead me to question the accuracy with which he has presented his circumstances and, therefore, his intentions.
For example, when you were asked in the interview how much time had passed since your son, you stated that 9 years had passed. However, in his application he states that he has not seen his son in 7 years and saw him for the last time in 2011.
I noticed that you were asked how often you talk to your child and you said you talk to him every day. When asked about his son's circumstances, such as his job and his home, he said he didn't know. I don't think it's credible, since you say you talk to your child every day that he wouldn't know details like why he can't stay at home or if he's employed. This leads me to question the accuracy with which he has presented his personal circumstances.
I noticed that you were asked about your family in Pakistan, asked who you live with in Pakistan and stated that you live with your husband and daughter, however, on your application form, you stated that you have 4 dependent grandchildren who you care for. He was asked several times to clarify his family's circumstances and there were discrepancies with each of the answers given. This leads me to further question the accuracy with which he has presented his circumstances.
He was asked if any of his family had applied for visas for the United Kingdom. You stated that your son has another wife with whom he had 4 children and that these 4 children live with you and that you did not know what had happened with your visas
or when your child applied for these visas or why your child applied for these visas. I note that his son applied for visas for these children to join him in the United Kingdom less than a year ago and that these applications were rejected. Our records show that during the application process for these children you provided a witness statement. Since he takes care of his children 4 children, he provided a witness statement for his visa applications and declares that he talks to his son every day. I don't think it's credible that he wouldn't know details about his son requesting visas for these children. This leads me to further question the accuracy with which he has presented his circumstances and his intentions. This undermines the credibility of its application as a whole.
Given the above, I am not satisfied that your intentions and circumstances are what you have established. Therefore, I am not satisfied that he is a genuine visitor and that he leaves the United Kingdom at the end of his visit. Therefore, your application is rejected under paragraphs V4.2 (a), (c) of the Immigration Rules.
I have considered the information and evidence presented in your application in accordance with the current guidance on the evaluation of visa applications. I am satisfied that the circumstances presented in your application are not capable of compromising human rights and, therefore, no human rights claim has been filed. I concluded that you have applied for a visa to enter the United Kingdom as a visitor to visit your child for 9 days. The documents you have submitted do not prove that you will not be able to visit your child elsewhere outside the United Kingdom. Consequently, this decision to deny your visa application is not a denial of a human rights claim and there is no right of appeal against this denial. "

The youngest has two children and the eldest has three children. It's not nine, it's four. A grandson and three granddaughters. I had the impression that you were asking about my son, so he has five grandchildren in total and four in the UK. Five in Pakistan and two in the United Kingdom.
