Motion for Joint Administration    Modified 03/17/2004

 

OVERVIEW

 

A Motion for Joint Administration is filed when two or more petitions are pending in the same court, and, in the interest of efficiency and economy the cases can be combined.  It does not involve the pooling of the assets and liabilities of the separate estates which are being jointly administered.  It involves the use of a single docket for matters occurring in the administration of the combined estates, the combining of notices to creditors and other purely administrative matters.
