How to file:

Location of event: Bankruptcy > Claims > Claim Events > Objection to Claims (Omnibus)

Things to be aware of when filing: The use of the court's sample combined Omnibus Objection to Claims form is encouraged.

  • 11 USC 502(a, b)
  • FRBP 3007
  • S. D. Ind B-3007-1

General Information

  • This event is to be used when objecting to more than one claim pursuant to FRBP 3007(d). An objection to a single claim in a case, or objections to claims that do not fall into one of the specified categories, must be filed as separate objections using Objection to Claim.

  • If an affected claimant does not agree with the objection, they can file a Response to Objection to Claim before the response deadline. The court will then set a hearing on the issue.
  • If no response is filed before the response deadline, the court will enter an order sustaining the objection. If a party wishes to have that order reconsidered, they can file a Motion to Reconsider Order on Claim(s).
  • Withdrawing an omnibus objection to claim as to a single claim: This should be done by either the filing of an amended objection, or the issue dealt with through language in the subsequent order.

Filing Requirements

  • The objection must be signed by the filing party.

  • The objection must be numbered consecutively with other omnibus objections filed by the same objector.
  • A 30 day response notice must be included. The notice may be included in the body of the objection or filed separately using the Objection to Claim(s) Notice event.
  • The use of the court's sample combined Omnibus Objection to Claims form is encouraged.
  • A Certificate of Service must be included showing service on the affected claimant and all parties of interest. View sample
