I'm not clear about your facts. You say that you have a son that is 1 year old, but say that you are his father 4 years ago? How is that possible? You also say that you want to apply for visa "him" in Brazil. Are you saying that you 3 live in Brazil, but want to all come to the USA? It is my understanding that if you are an American Citizen, that you can petition for your wife and son to come to USA. You may need to be in the USA while asking her to come be with you, showing that you have a job and place to stay, and that you won't be a burden to the federal government.

K1s are fiancee visas, for fiances that intend to marry a US citizen within 90 days of arriving in the USA. If you are together with the mother of your son, and want to marry her in the USA, then yes, that is the correct visa. Though you may consider marrying and petitioning for the CR-1 spousal visa; it takes a bit longer, but is cheaper and means she can travel and work right away on arrival in the USA.

As for your son, if he is your biological son, and you spend significant time in the USA before moving to Brazil, he may be a US citizen and entitled to a US passport, thus not needing a visa. Read up on CRBA (Consular Record of Birth Abroad).

yes you can do that.

The only issue is the affadavit of support- you will need to either sponsor your fiance on assets, or get a US based co-sponsor.
