Salamalekum, my question is if my father and grandfather not alive and I am self depend but my big brother is there so can we take permission my brother or I can do temporary marriage without permission…


Waalykum salam 

Thank you for your Question 
For your Query, I called the office of Sayyid Sistani, and they said that since your father and Grandfather have both passed away, the rule is silent on you and you are able to make your decisions yourself. 
On a side note however, ethically I find it wise to mention that kindly refer to the following link before you make any decisions

Question: I am writing to you regarding a question about Mut’a (temporary marriage). I am very confused as to what I should do. I am 18, and recently a boy the same age as me asked for my hand in marriage, but that this is for the coming years, when he becomes independent.
Kind regards,
