A: It certainly can. It depends on your specific real estate transaction. Selling a home is much different than selling a factory and there isn't enough info in your question to know about this specific transaction. That being said, assuming this is the sale of a home, you generally must pay off all liens as part of the terms of the sale. Most buyers won't buy a home that will continue to have a lien on it after the sale is complete. The contract will often require that the seller pay off all liens as part of the sale of the home. Generally these liens don't hold up the sale of the real estate so long as the proceeds of the sale of the home are enough that the liens are paid off at closing.
A: If you have a written contract, it may be easier to have the Court's assistance in enforcing the terms of the contract if the other party breaches the agreement. The are a number of ways to protect yourself when you loan someone money, such as a promissory note or collateral.

A: The Order will include the start date that the judge ordered the payments to start. Most temporary orders are entered by the Court within a relatively short period of time after the hearing occurs, from a few days to a month or so on average. If the other party was required to prepare the order and doesn't submit the Order within the normal period of time, then you may need to file a motion with the Court to ask the Court to enter the order. Child support is normally required through the Nebraska Child Support Payment Center. The method of making other payments can depend on the terms of the Order.
