I filed a lawsuit but it has not got to court yet, I was wonder if they are obligated to pay me now.

Provided you complied with all applicable notice and timing requirements and filed a valid and enforceable lien, and that your enforcement action was initiate timely, your lawsuit to enforce the lien is likely the best bet for getting paid what you are owed. The fact that you have a lien on the property, by itself, wouldn't necessarily obligate the property owner to pay you before hiring or even paying another contractor for an unrelated project.
