Pedro Quezada holds up the promotional Powerball jackpot check of $338 million at the end of a news conference at the New Jersey Lottery headquarters in Trenton, March 26, 2013.

Powerball multi-millionaire Pedro Quezada got another lucky break.

A child support warrant against Quezada, the winner of the fourth-largest Powerball jackpot in history, has been temporarily stayed pending a court appearance on Monday, a spokesman for the Passaic County Sheriff’s office confirmed to NBC News.

Quezada, whose lucky numbers won him $338 million, is due to appear before a New Jersey superior court judge at 1:30 p.m. on Monday.

The sheriff's office said earlier this week that Quezada was subject to arrest on the outstanding warrant and that they were "attempting to notify Mr. Quezada about the issue in an effort to have it resolved in a timely manner."

The Passaic County Probation Department notified the sheriff's office of the outstanding child support payments.

Authorities said the 44-year-old bodega owner from New Jersey owes about $29,000 in child support payments dating back to 2009. It is unclear which of Quezada’s five children are supposed to be covered by the payments.

Quezada is originally from the Dominican Republic and has lived in the United States for 26 years.

He told reporters at a press conference Tuesday that he felt "pure joy" about his lottery win and would use a share of his windfall to help his family.

"My family is a very humble family and we're going to help each other out," Quezada said through a translator when he accepted his winnings.
