Can your chapter 7 be dismissed if you were late on payment but now are paid in full?

Yes it can, but since you've gottemn back in compliance, it would be very unusual.

That said, BK is not just to give you another chance to make up for your prior failings, but for you to understand that not paying as agreed...which is when others are counting on you, not performing on your promises, for whatever reason, is totally unacceptable. To continue to expect others to continue to protect you from the consequences of it will wear out soon.
