Rabbi Yirmiyohu Kaganoff

Tammuz 27, 5768
Question
For reasons of Kovod Met" my mother is going to be reburied in a proper cemetary. What halachot are involved. I understand that I must sit Shiva for the day. what about Keriah and Kaddish?
Answer
One tears Keriya and “sits Shiva” from when the bones or casket are removed until the end of the day. There is no Kaddish. A Cohen is not Metamei to a relative whose grave is being relocated.
