l was wondering if you could assist me on a couple of legal question l have regarding wills. In May this year my bother died and he didn't have a will. He wasn't married or in any kind of relationship but he has a 4 year old son that he did keep incontact with. My first question is: Who is authorised to handle my brothers financial affairs? Who becomes next of kin? Would a parent automatically become next of kin? l would appreciate it if you could assist me or put in the right direction to what firm or organisation that could.
