Spousal and Child Support?

Have not did a short sale with Spousal or Child support Judgment.

I have a property that has 3 liens and  2 judgments.

1st is with Wells Fargo 

2nd is with Shell Point (ELC)

3rd is a Lien with no loan "Milton M Wright"

Support Judgment shows no amount, seller thinks it is about $30,000 

Judgment for EDD.

Will the 1st take care of the Support lien or will this kill the deal?

Does Chase give a 3% closing cost credit to Buyers?

Hello Superstars,

In your experience will Chase allow a closing cost credit to the buyer

The buyer is going FHA loan.

What are your thoughts?
