Halacha - Shiva
Submitted by anon  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Answer: One does not sit shiva for other, distant relatives, however Kaddish may be recited. It is customary, however that one who has both parents does not recite Kaddish, in which case the best solution is to daven before the amud as chazzan whenever possible. A true avel will always have precedence oven one davening for a more distant relative.
