Halacha - kadish/no chiyuv
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question: a friend of mine who is a gabbai has gotten different answers and different reactions to the question of saying kaddish in davening if there is no chiyuv there. he does say it - though he's not a chiyuv - having heard that it hould be said. it seems to me that this is a category of minhag. what can you tell me about this?

The basic Kaddishes recited after Yishtabach, Tachanun and U'Va L'Tzion are recited by the Chazan under all circumstances. Kaddish Yasum, such as after Aleinu, and Kaddish D'Rabannan may and should be recited as well even if no mourner is present, but the custom is that one who's both parents are still alive does not say these Kaddishes.
