In this case, since your permanent address on documents like PAN/Passport would remain the same- you can use the electricity bill, water bill, telephone landline bill, or property tax receipt for your son's residence as proof of address. You can also use your new bank statement/passbook, or credit card statement as the address proof for Aadhaar updation.
