13 ARGUMENT

14 A. THE COURT MAY ORDER THE JUDGMENT DEBTOR TO ASSIGN A


15
RIGHT TO PAYMENT TO THE JUDGMENT CREDITOR
16
Code of Civil Procedure section 708.510 authorizes a Court to issue an order directing the
17
Judgment Debtor to assign to a Judgment Creditor, all or part of a right to payment due, or to become
18

19 due, including wages due from the federal government that are not subject to withholding under an

20 earnings withholding order, rents, commissions, royalties, payments due from a patent or copyright,
21
insurance policy loan value, accounts receivable, general intangibles, judgments and instruments.
22
Although the Court may take into consideration all relevant factors, the sole constraints
23
placed on the Court are that the right to payment be assigned only to the extent necessary to satisfy
24

25 the creditors money judgment and that, where part of the payments are exempt, the amount of the

26 payments assigned should not exceed the difference between the gross amount of the payments and
27
the exempt amount.
