We have a single forest with 50 child domains. Quite complex and scary at times.
I was looking for any support articles if 2012 server supports this infrastructure.

Trying to move away from this infrastructure and  have only 3 child domains geographically, i'm not sure if MS has any tools for ease of migration to a simpler infrastructure other then admt tool.

Any suggestions?

Admt is the only migration tool Microsoft make.  Check the askds  blog.  The last entry mentions a new release I. Q1 2014.

Quest/Dell and other make tools that can help if you have a budget.

Thanks

Windows 2012 forest will support almost total 1200 domains per forest irrespective of child domains.

Also yet ADMT to support 2012 DC is not released
You need to use 2008 R2 DC at minimum in 2012 forest to use ADMT 3.2

It means you cannot raise your functional levels to 2012 and above if you wanted to use ADMT in 2012 forest.
