I don't know how many years your time with your child has been dictated by the mother. Hire a custody attorney to get guaranteed time with your child. Create a text or email record of regularly requesting more time.
I never knew she moved him out of state until i was able to pick him so I had my mother to call her because we don’t get alone so she stated to my mother that I knew that she moved but that’s a total lie because I never signed any papers with us having joint custody..what should I do?
If she removed the child from Louisiana, she would have had to comply with the relocation statute. She should have notified you of the proposed move before it occurred. If she didn't, you have the right to file contesting the move. A family law/custody attorney can help you with this.

Your wife may have had a private attorney. Look up the lawyer on the Louisiana State Bar Association website or look at the end of the petition with which you were served. You can send the child support directly to your wife or her lawyer. But ONLY do so by check; not money order, not cash.
