How long before we get a lien against the house? Posted on August 11, 2011

My husband is being sued for unpaid debts. We have tried to work a payment plan with the creditor. But he refused. We are due in court on August 17. My husband lost his job and has prostrate cancer. We could not afford the payments on our house and sold it. We are due to close on August 19. I am worried that we are due in court on the 17 and the house will not close until the 19th. If a judgment is issued how long would it be before they would put a lien against the house? We live in Texas. And how can I protect the profits from the sale of the house which is only about $10,000. Thanks for any advice.
