Step-Parent Adoption

Location: Nashville, TN

I have a 6-year old son by a previous marriage (divorced 1996). After 3 years of battling continuous visitation issues/disputes, my ex contacted me to state that he would give up his paternal rights to my son if my current husband would adopt him. We are more than thrilled about this, but I am also very leary. If an agreed adoption order is signed, how long does he have to ''change his mind''? If I hire an attorney and my ex backs out after the process has begun, is there any financial recourse for me to recoup my money from him? Thanks in advance.
