Single-Part Motion/Application

Last Updated: March 2012

This module will demonstrate the steps to file a motion in CM/ECF. This example demonstrates the electronic filing of a motion that requests only one type of relief. The same steps would be followed for other types of single-relief motions and applications. See also: Motions/Applications Multi-Part for guidance on filing a document with more than one type of relief.

 All motions are required to have a proposed order attached to the Motion/Application docket entry. (Motions for Relief from Stay are excluded from this requirement and do not have to have a proposed order attached unless it is a consent order).

See the Motion and Notice of Motion Module for the following:

Motion for Relief from Stay

Motion to Avoid Lien

Motion to Sell Free and Clear of Lien

Motion to Borrow/Obtain Credit/Refinance

Motion for Determination Secured Status of Claim

Motion to Value Collateral under 11 USC Sec. 506
