If you have full physical custody but joint legal custody can your ex have the child baptized without your permission?
That depends on whether it is stated in your parenting agreement as to who has the right to make religious decisions. Is it addressed? Is decision making joint? If this issue is not addressed then, yes, he/she can have the child baptised. My question to you would be...why does it really matter? If you thoroughly research baptism, you will find that it doesn't mean anything unless the party being baptised is consentual to it. A parent can have a child baptised with the intention of showing the world that they intend to raise that child in that particular religion, but actual baptism potrays the acknowledgement of Jesus Christ as Lord, and symbolizes the washing away of sins. Is your child old enough to consent and agree? If not, it is simply a ceremony for the sake of your ex. If your child is old enough, let him/her make their own decision about this. It just may be the most important decision they will ever make.

For a child to be baptized, the parents have to be willing to bring up the child in the practice of the faith. So in normal circumstances the parent's permission is needed. However, in danger of death, a person can be baptized without the parent's permission. On occasion, if mothers choose not to have their children baptized, a grandmother has been known to secretly baptize. This iwas done to free the child from original sin…
You have full physical custody of your daughter and you have joint legal custody can you move out of state without his permission?
No If by moving the party means a move within the jurisdiction of the court that mandated the custodial order, then yes, you may relocate. If the question refers to relocating outside of said jurisdiction, the primary custodial will need the written notarized permission of the non primary custodial parent and/or permission from the court.
Sole physical and sole legal custody? If the custody order doesn't state otherwise, most likely but that is a question best posed to an attorney or the courts before you move if you aren't sure. If you have sole physical custody but joint legal custody or the other parent has otherwise retained their right for decision making power in their child's life, no, not without the other parent's permission or a court order.

Can a father baptize their child without the biological mother present but with the step mother present if they were never legally married?
Never without the real mother present. Answer: Anyone can "baptize" anyone with or without their permission or the permission of any relative (some churches baptize everyone not in their faith to their faith) - the question becomes so what: Without the permission of a legal guardian it is a form of bullying Without the permission of the baptized party is is similar to entering someone else into contract without their agreement It has no standing…
Only with permission of both parents. Your marriage to the father with joint custody does not automatically confer parental rights including access to medical records without written permission from both parents in cases of joint custody and may not even apply if the father had full legal and physical custody. This is federal law (HIPAA). If you were to legally adopt the child, those rights were be conferred by virtue of the adoption.
