You can request those changes, but the changes you have given above have no legal consequence in the enforcement or application of the settlement agreement. The terms in the current agreement are often used in divorce cases for ease of reference.
Unfortunately, yes she can. Until there is an actual order of legitimation, you do not have any custodial rights to the children. If you have already filed, you need to request a hearing on this issue as soon as possible.
We have only been married for 6 months.

You can enter into a consent order to change custody with your mother that is filed with the court. As it appears that everyone is on the same page with the child living with you, it does not need to be a contentious process.
Yes, however, the father will need to file the petition for legitimation in Superior Court and have the mother served with it. The Court in the legitimation action can establish custody and visitation rights of the father.
It will not be feasible to exercise true joint physical (50/50) custody of a minor child where the parents live in two different states. However, joint legal custody is customarily ordered, even with an out of state party.

She will not tell me where she is moving to, she won't give me her number to contact her about him. If she move before they serve the papers, what will be the... Read more »
Until she is served, there is no standing order to prohibit her from leaving the state with your child. Unfortunately, until you are legitimized, she does not have to advise you of her whereabouts either as you have no rights to custody or visitation until then. You should aggressively pursue...Read more »
My husband filed for Child support in Jan. 2019 against his son's mother, the NCP. He has full physical custody and joint legal custody. The NCP is "homeless" on paper, and the sheriff has been unable to serve her at any address available. She visits the child regularly at our home, extracurricular... Read more »
If you have specific dates/times that she will be there for visitation, you can have a private process server serve her during those visitation periods. Oftentimes, you can arrange a specific time and place with a process server, where this is not typically an option with the Sheriff's Office.
Yes, if there is an order of custody. If the child no longer wants to visit, you should file a modification of visitation action. Otherwise, you will risk being held in contempt for not making the child exercise visitation with the non-custodial parent.
I'm not sure what your question is. If the petition/complaint is dated 10/22/2018, but you were not served until last night, you will still have 30 days from the date of service to respond. It is not unusual for there to be a delay in service if there is difficulty locating a respondent.
