After Death Communication

How long can someone leave their belongings at your house until they are considered abandoned?

My ex left after 2.5 yrs… i considered him family, his mom died after we both gave up a ton financially and mentally to take care of her. About a month after her death, he started going out partying and left, no real goodbye or notice. He disappeared for a month and then went to rehab but we have had no communication. He left belongings and his truck, I can barely pay the bills and can’t move his stuff on my own…

Ask an attorney. Laws vary state to state, I’m sure. Perhaps if he no longer has legal claim to his abandoned stuff, you can sell it to pay some of your bills. But check with an attorney first.
