Hi wilddream-ga,

Firstly, please note that Google Answers does not provide legal
advise. I am not responsible if the information below will cause you
to lose your visa, be deported, thrown in jail and beheaded...
Although, I highly doubt it.

I can't imagine it would negatively affect your application. An H1-B
is a worker visa, and is dual-purpose. You can apply for an adjustment
of status on it, so, there is already an assumption that you may be an
intending immigrant. Therefore, the fact that you have other ties that
would also make you an intending immigrant is a non-issue.

In addition, I would assume that when they issued the H1-B visa to
begin with, you had already previously disclosed that you had a
brother who lived in the US...

HOWEVER, *NOT* putting your brother on the form is a form of perjury
and WILL affect your stay in the US. In other words, you'd probably be
deported from the Country as your application was fraudulent.

Since nothing less than a five-star rating is acceptable to me, if any
part of this answer is unclear, please ask for clarification prior to
rating and thus closing this question.
