Hi - my name is XXXXX XXXXX I'm a Bankruptcy litigation attorney here to assist you.
There's no form motion, but you can file a motion to continue the confirmation hearing until the resolution of the adversary proceeding.
The judge must then decide whether or not proceeding with a plan would be effected by an outcome in the adversary case. The judge may allow the confirmation to continue, but it an award is made to the debtor, the court can direct that the money be applied to the money owed under the plan and reduce the obligation - which would allow the plan to conclude earlier than expected. The judge would enter an order modifying the plan to evidence this payment.
