i can feel all the pain that you have gone through over period of 6 years, specially looking at your son being beaten as well, its brave of you to have moved out of the abusive relationship, now at a point where you are considering moving back with him or divorce, it would be wise to move back if you are completely healed of trauma, fear, pain that came along as part of being with him and also if you trust him again for change he is showing you ,not because your son misses him.

chances are that he has changed for good, but un-till you feel safe around him, think of how your relationship with him look like? children often do not understand these things, and decision taken based on what your child wants at this point is not healthy one, rather decide based on what is good for your child and you as well

Hope this helps,
