My brother's immigration process i-130 for spouse was in progress and had gotten approved. No interview is conducted yet for the spouse overseas yet but now they filed a divorce without informing us. What to do now? How do we cancel this unnecessary process?
If your brother is the petitioner, then he can file a letter with the USCIS withdrawing the I-130 petition.
If your brother petitioned for his spouse, he can send a written request to USCIS asking that the Form I-130 be withdrawn. He can also notify the National Visa Center if the case is pending with said office.

Your brother can send a letter to the USCIS withdrawing his petition.
Mr. Shusterman's (former INS Trial Attorney, 1976-82) response to your question is general in nature, as not all the facts are known to him. You should retain an attorney experienced in immigration law to review all the facts in your case in order to receive advice specific to your case. Mr. Shusterman's statement above does not create an attorney/client relationship.
If your brother filed the I-130 and started the process, it will need to be your brother that writes to stop the process. He needs to do this in written form and the process will be suspended. I hope this information is helpful.
