If I am late on my auto payment and the finance co. has not been able to repossess it as of this date, do they have to accept my payment and can they still repossess my vehicle?

They don't legally have to accept it, but I don't know of any finance company that would not accept it. If you come current, they would rather have your payments than the car. I've found that with situations like this (where someone is behind on payments and willing to work to make up the payments and come current) the best thing to do is to talk to the finance company. They will almost always work with you. As I said, they don't want your stuff, they want their money. Either call them or call a bankruptcy attorney. The worst thing you can do is simply avoid the creditor and do nothing. That always ends badly.
