I am following a sale scheduled for the coming week. A Child Support Judgment was recorded on the owner in 2002 (no amount indicated on the filed judgment) prior to the 1st TD recorded in 2006. I assume the Child Support Judgment is a general lien affecting all property owned by current owner. If I buy at auction, would this lien be senior to the 1st TD or was it likely taken care of when the 1st was recorded? I want to know if I might be responsible for paying the judgment. Nothing was ever filed showing a satisfaction of judgment.
In the case that the judgment was filed after the 1st, would the judgment take priority?
