By lodging an affidavit of support with USCIS you are accepting financial responsibility for your nephew for the time he remains in the Unites States until he becomes a citizen.
Your obligation only ceases upon death of either of you and/or your nephew works in the US for 10 years in aggregation.
Should your nephew become a burden on the State and lodge for unemployment or other means-tested benefits you personally will have to repay that money.
Your responsibility will cease when he leaves the US and the current visa expires.

I see you have yet to rate my answer.
I only get a CREDIT after a POSITIVE RATING

If you require more information, I'd be happy to supply more when needed.
Best of luck
