Question: If my ex gave his rights up can he try get back

Answer: The question here is what do you mean when you say your ex "gave his rights up."  Did a court issue an order terminating his parental rights?  Or do you mean he gave you full custody rights?  They are very different things.  If his parental rights were severed in a court action, he has only a limited time to appeal that decision before it becomes final.  Because your question is complicated and depends on the paperwork that was filed and court orders issued, it would be best if you discussed the matter with an attorney.  There are 3 programs in Arizona that you can use to get some inexpensive legal advice and guidance.  One is the Modest Means Program.  If you are financially qualified for the program, for a $75 fee, Modest Means  will arrange a one hour consult with an experienced attorney.  If you need additional help and the attorney agrees to take your case, the fee charged will not exceed $75 per hour.  The telephone number is (866)637-5341.  Both the Maricopa and Pima County Bar Associations have lawyer referral programs that offer a 30 minute consult with an experienced attorney.  Maricopa County's Lawyer Referral Service offers a 30 minute consult for a fee of $40.  The telephone number is (602) 257-4434.  Pima County's Lawyer Referral Service offers a 30 minute consultation for a fee of $35.  The telephone number is (520) 623-4625. If you do  not have sufficient money to pay for a reduced fee consult, you can go elsewhere on this website and apply to see if you qualify for a free lawyer.  Go to http://www.azlawhelp.org/accesstojustice.cfm
