Can I trade in my car if I am behind on payments?

You absolutely can trade in your vehicle even if you are behind on your payments. When you trade a vehicle in the dealership you are purchasing from pays off your previous loan in full, so being behind on your payments will not affect anything other than the total amount due on your car. Of course when the new dealership runs your credit report it will probably reflect that you are currently behind and will also show how many months you are behind.

Grammar - 3 month's time or 3 months time?

Just to be awkward, I rather think it should be 3 months' time. Months are not in possession of time !!!! I believe it would be "3 months time". Answer above is correct in that months cannot be in possession of time; however, "3 months' time" would still be giving the word "months" possession.

If you have an order to make mortgage payments in Lieu of childsupport What if you fall behind on the payments Is it contempt?

It may be. More importantly, do you want your child to be homeless? If you fall far enough behind on the mortgage payments the mortgage company could foreclose ... and then where would your child be? More likely, your state will go to your employer to garnish your wages for the payments to make sure you fulfill the arrearage and stay on time with future payments. Answer these questions for yourself: are your car payments on time? are your rent/mortgage payments on time? have you bought yourself any clothing in the past couple months? have you bought any gifts for others in the past couple months? have you gone out to eat in the past couple months? If your answer to any of these is YES, then tighten your belt, grow up, lose the self-indulgence and act like an adult ... a parent. Short of significant physical injury or illness beyond your control, you will face consequences.

Can my power company shut off my power if I am paying on the bill each month?

Usually you must be several months behind on payments before they can shut off power. You could potentially get several months behind while "paying on the bill each month" if those payments were so small (e.g. $1 per month) as to have no practical effect on the accumulating balance due, but this might be a judgment call and talking to them about reasons you can't pay more at this time and how to get assistance would help prevent disconnection. However you made no comment on the size of the payments you are making, so I don't know if this is your case.

If I pay about 6 months worth of mortgage payments so I can be ahead what will happen if my house was to get destroyed Would I be out of all 6 months worth of money?

It sounds like you would be expecting a refund. You owe your mortgage payments even if your house gets destroyed. If you paid six months ahead your money is gone. You won't get it back but it would reduce what you own on your mortgage. However, if you have a mortgage then it is likely you have homeowner's insurance that would restore/repair your dwelling.You may also be expected to make your monthly payments. If you are contemplating this type of move it would be best to discuss it with your mortgage company before you send in any extra payments.
