Hi
I am sorry but there is no basis on which your son can be used to allow his father to come to the Uk to live.
Whilst your son does have a right to a Family Life the fact is that this can be achieved in other ways than his father coming to the UK.
If your husband is no longer willing to have the child in his home then clearly you have the option of setting up home with your son if you so wish - or sending him to live with his biological father.
I am sorry - I am aware that this is not the news that you were wanting but given the current restrictions there is no basis on which what you want can be achieved
Please ask if you need further details
