Are you talking about the affidavit of support? Or the Petition for Alien Relative? If it has been filed, a simple written statement to USCIS that you wish to withdraw is sufficient, if it has not been approved yet. It would courteous to first notify your brother, and give him an opportunity to file a substitute before you withdraw.
