Missing a payment occasionally is not the end of the world. You must be in arrears a certain amount before they will even do anything legal wise. Often this amount is at least 5000.

Simply call them on Wednesday and let them know you want to start a payment plan on the arrears owed. If you can afford a extra 25 or 50.00 a month they will often accept this on your arrears.

As long as you are actively trying to pay it they will do nothing legal to you. Please do not forget to click accept so I receive credit for my answer.
