one party to another. A person who has successfully obtained a court ordered judgment
(the "Assignor") can wholly transfer their interest in the judgment to a third party (the

and after execution of this document will be the exclusive owner of the rights and
benefits of the judgment. This agreement is ideal for small businesses or individuals
that want to sell or buy a court ordered judgment.
