Aged out Child

Asked over 1 year ago - Smyrna, GA

Son has aged out in the immigration process. My priority date was July 07 - I have my green card. When I apply for a green card for my son as a family member -what will his priority date be? Will he retain the July 07 date or will it be the date he applies now?
