You will have to make an application in SDM office wherein the application is required to be filed by wife.

The legal heir in the instant case will be:

1. Mother of your brother

2. Wife

3 Childeren.

If the wife applies then she would need Adhar Card, Id proof , one plain photograph , one attested photo. The mother and childeren id proof such as passport , adhar card have to be annex.

Submit the application and within 21 days you will receive your legal heir certificate
