William Thomas Cain/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Pedro Quezada will have to catch up on some payments first before he can cash his $338 million Powerball jackpot check.

The former Passaic, N.J., bodega owner won the top prize last Saturday.  He opted to take a $152 billion payout after taxes.

But before Quezada can see that money, he’ll have to get around to paying $29,000 in child support.

The 44-year-old is married with five children.  It is not yet clear which of his kids is covered under these payments.
