Baptism consent

In Paul Turner's Blog by Paul Turner

Q:  A lady would like to get her son baptized, but is divorced.  Do I need consent from the father before we proceed with formation and the baptism.  Thanks – just want to stay away from any land mines.
A:  I think it would be good to find out what the father says. If he refuses, you may still baptize, but it would be good to reach out to him and learn his opinion.
