If I understand the question correctly, it is whether a party can withdrawal consent for a release for records? The consent for disclosure can be withdrawn unless there is a court order, incompetency or other statue that controls. It sounds like this is part of a much larger issue you are not disclosing. If you have questions, contact a CO attorney. Best of luck.

Yes, someone can change their mind. A release is not an agreement, it is merely a consent. That consent can always be withdrawn. Only a court can order a person to release documents so if you want documents then it will have to requested related to court matter and count authority.
Also, notarization is of no significance at all. That does not confer some special powers on this release.

Consent does not necessarily last forever. Your ex gave consent and is free to revoke it. If the release of the information was granted pursuant to a binding contract (which requires you to have provided some consideration or value for the promise) or a court order then you can pursue a breach of contract claim or contempt of court.

An Authorization for Release of Records can be withdrawn at any time by the party who consented to the authorization, in this case your ex; it is not an enforceable agreement. The notarization does not serve any special purpose other than to verify that the signature is a true signature.
