I am a UK citizen and married my Trinidadian wife three years ago whilst working in the country. I now would like to return back to the UK and bring my wife and new son to reside.

Hello,

Your wife needs to apply for a UK spouse settlement visa. You must be having savings of at least £63000 for at least 6 months or your annual income must be £18600.

See here for the process for applying for this visa

If you are a British Citizen otherwise than by descent, your son would be British by descent assuming he was born there and you simply need to apply for a British Passport for him.
