Joint Administration (Motion)

Rev. 1/25/2019


Fed. R. Bankr. P. 1015(b)



Joint Administration is the combining of two or more cases in the interest of efficiency and economy.  It involves the use of one docket for the matters occurring in the administration of the combined estates and the joint handling of other administrative matters that may aid in expediting the cases and rendering the process less costly.  


Unlike consolidation and substantive consolidation, it does not involve the merging of assets and liabilities of the separate estates.  Parties must file proofs of claim in each individual case.


The movant must file the motion in the LEAD case and each MEMBER case.



Do not use this event to file a motion to consolidate.  See instructions:  Consolidate
