Multi-Part Motions

Last Updated: March 15, 2016

Multi-part motions are motions that consist of more than one relief type. It is important to file multi-part motions correctly as the Court is required to collect statistical information.

Several Examples of a Multi-Part Motion:

  • Motion for Relief from Stay or, in the Alternative, Motion for Adequate Protection;

  • Motion to Dismiss Case or, in the Alternative, Motion to Convert.

To File Electronically:

  1. Log into CM/ECF.

  2. Select [Bankruptcy >  Motions/Applications].

  3. Enter the case number (e.g, xx-xxxxx).

  4. Select [__first motion listed in document__] from the event list; while continuously holding down "control key", then select [__second motion listed in document__] from the event list.  

    Note:  You should see both motions in Selected Events column.  Be sure to select the motion relief types in the same order as listed in your motion caption (pdf).

  5. Skip the Joint Filing screen if you are the only party filing this motion. If this is a joint filing, check the box.

  6. Select the party filer. If the party is not listed, click on Add/Create New Party.

    Note:  The Attorney/Party Association screen may appear. If your party selection was correct, check the box to create an association.

  7. Indicate "y or n" if the proof of service is included with the motion.

    Note:  The Motion, Notice, and Proof of Service may be a single PDF, with any supporting documents, or added as attachments to this document. The Motion must be the first document in your PDF.
