Legal ? No... unless you already have a court order stating any changes can be made by both party in writing (ours does). I would make your agreement and file it with the court so it is legal. If you guys agree then a judge just signs it... there is no hassle but that way you can have it legal. A police officer can only enforce a court order.
Edit to add: if are worried about him not returning child then GO THROUGH COURT! I know people that just had verbal agreements and it worked because they all got along. But that is not the norm.

No you file the paper along with the regular court papers. He gets served. Replies he agrees... and then judge signs off. You may not even have to go to court. For example: Our state (CA) requires mediation and if you both agree, you both sign it and mediator gives to judge and no court date needed.

 yeah he's up to some"ish".....I wounldt trust him...if he REALLY has motive to do right...then really making things legal should NOT be a problem...sounds to me he wants to evade child support..unless he is already paying. 

I would file petitions to the court to legalize any custody arrangements. period.
