If the son is not traveling, then no documentation is needed at the interview. If you decide later that you want him to join, then you will have to schedule an interview for him along with the same documentation that your fiancé requires.

 

Just a heads up. It's hard to separate a mother from their children. Think this through. I brought my wife and her two children, and my wife reminds me each time the topic is talked about that she wouldn't have come if she had to leave her children behind. It was one of the best decisions I made. Our marriage survived because of that little jester.

I dont think I have enough money to sponsor both at the same time and her son told her he want to stay in his country so I will not force the child

Look at the I-864p.  You can also find a co sponsor for the K1 and a joint sponsor for the AOS.  Consider getting another job.  What matters it the income at the time of the interview.

You also need to realize that those numbers are the minimum.  The consulate officier can still refuse or ask for a co sponsor based on the totality of the circumstances.

I make enough to sponsor one immigrant at a time but I do not make enough to sponsor her and her child so if we want to do that I would have to wait for her to get a job so she could be a co-sponsor but anyways her son wants to stay in the Philippines for now. In the future I plan on immigrating to the Philippines for retirement

You know that will be at least 6 to 9 months after getting married?  EADs and APs are no longer "fast".  She only as a year to bring her son as a K2 follow to join.

 

It would be much smarter cost and travel wise to do it together.   Get a part time job  or joint sponsor for the AOS.  The issue looks to be when they AOS.

You have to make enough to cover all immigrants you are sponsoring.   It isn't one at a time.  Until your wife has enough work credit or becomes a citizen she will be an immigrant that you are sponsoring.

Yes I'm familiar with the green card process but like I said her son doesn't want to come here until he is older so I'm not going to file for him if he does not want to come. AIT already received my petition and sent my fiance packet 3 so we are getting very close to the interview

A few things to consider:

Expect that you would be filing an I-130 for the child and that will take well over a year. 

Expect the child to be significantly behind in school when coming to the US unless the child is in an international private school in the Philippines.

 

I volunteer at an immigration clinic and leaving a child behind and having them come later is one of the biggest regrets I hear.   It is right up there with I wished we never did a K1.

 

Hey the good news is AIT is a great "consulate" and they really have their stuff together.

I agree with @Paul & Mary. When you leave a child behind it has an impact on your wife. Trust me, there are so many that have tried it your way only to regret it. Like Paul said, get additional work and try and do your best to bring the child. I had two that came, one in college and the other in middle school. The MS child fit right in at school. He has so many friends and yes, he is acting just like a western teenager. Wanting to be independent but failing at times. Good luck and stay engaged.
