How do I withdraw a Motion to Show Cause for Contempt?

I was unaware that I cannot appeal my ED case if I accept a benefit from the Court Order for which I intend to appeal. Meanwhile, I filed a Motion to Show Cause for Contempt for not paying the distributive award from my ED case. The Hearing is in two weeks and I have no idea what to do. The reason for filing the Motion to Show Cause is because I cannot afford an attorney without the distributive award. How do I get out of the Motion to Show Cause and to figure another way without losing my right to appeal the same issue?
