As Administrator, it is your job to file a Petition to Determine Heirs. Each person who thinks he is an heir will have to prove to the judge how he is an heir. This type of action is best handled with attorney assistance.
It depends completely on what kind of property your brother owns. If it is real estate, bank accounts, etc., you have to open an estate for him in order to transfer the property to the next of kin. If his property is from life insurance or other beneficiary designated accounts, you should be able...Read more »
