Joint Administration (Motion)

Rev. 5/25/2018


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


Pursuant to 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 a single docket for the matters occurring in the administration of the combined estates, and the joint handling of other purely 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.  Proofs of claim are filed and maintain in each separate case.




The Motion for Joint Administration must be filed in the LEAD case and the MEMBER case(s).


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