How long does a late payment affect your credit score?Pay your bills on time
Credit bureau don't consider a payment late until it is 30 days past due.
If you have otherwise spotless credit and a good score, though, a late payment can knock as much as 100 points off your credit score.
If your score is already low, and you have multiple late payments, it won’t hurt it as much. You can’t change the past — but if your credit behavior from here on out shows that you pay on time, every time, that will be reflected in your score
Will a partial payment keep me from being reported late?
Partial payments are not a way to avoid being reported late or sent to collections
