How old is he?
Thats absolutely fine. The best thing is to find if the 12 year old wants to live with you or your son. Then if he does you can make an application to the court for a child arrangements order so that he can live with either of you. The court will investigate the concerns and come to a decision as to where is best/safe for him. I have attached a link to a very helpful book on amazon for about a tenner which explains the process - https://www.amazon.co.uk/Represent-Yourself-Family-Court-understanding/dp/147211910X

There is no specific age - the court should always consider the child's wishes and feelings - however once they get t0 12 or 13 they are more often voting with their feet - leaving home or refusing to go to contact - as such their voices are louder. Please remember to rate 4 or 5 stars. The book should help. They are child arrangement orders and they allow him to live with you and spend time with his mother
