Currently at NVC - filing additional I-130 for minor

I applied for my Canadian husband for the I-130 and we are currently at the NVC stage. His son, who is 14, now wants to live with his Dad which means filing an I-130 for him as well. So our questions are these:

1. Do we file for him now or after we have completed the interview for my husband?

I am figuring by the time we get the son's I-130 approved and on to the NVC, we should already have our interview date with Montreal. Would there be any reason they would put a hold on our file to catch his up with ours or maybe if we already have an interview date and the son's file gets completed at the NVC by then, they might expedite his to we can take care of both at the same time in Montreal?

2. If you file an I-130 for a minor, does someone still have to fly to Montreal to do an interview? Parent only or does the child also go if the petition is only for the child?

Thanks you guys!

Your son will need to go to Montreal for an interview. I'm in the process of having my 12 yr old son move here from Ontario.

One thought you might want to look into.....is your son able to come to the US on "Follow To Join" status. My son wasn't able to do this because I have my LPR status and I've been here for 7 years, but your son might be able to do this.

The process for my son has taken 5 months already, and we're only at the NVC stage.

Feel free to send me a PM if you want further specifics.
