I recently separated from my wife of ten years. She went on holidays with the kids to our home country and had our last born baptized without my consent.
I strongly opposed the baptism on the ground that I wanted to be present. We have four children and I have been present to all the other children baptisms. After my initial opposition, she did not mention the baptism again and to my great surprise, she went ahead with it anyway, she just informed me that she had our youngest child baptised
I am very distraught by this obviously.
My question are: Can this baptism be valid without the father’s presence, my knowledge or consent?
If still valid, do I have grounds to have that ceremony annuled or not officially recognised by the Catholic church?
We are separated but still legally married and our youngest son is two years old. I would like a baptism where both of us are present
