Verbal or written divorce statements

Please reply.
I pray you are well.

If a person WRITES an e-mail/question to a maulana/mufti to find out the ruling/fatwa or just to know the answer and on the e-mail the person writes that he said and wrote statements to his wife such as :’yes you are divorced’ or any other divorce statement,but in reality he didnt say and write any statements. for example on the e-mail the person writes: ‘dear maulana I have said and wrote to my wife the statement, ‘yes you are divorced etc’). But wrote this email just to find the ruling and in reality has not said/written any divorce statements.

1)Would that cause divorce, just because he wrote in the email as explained above that he said and wrote the above or a divorce statement. When in reality the person hasnt said and written any statements? And it was only for the purpose of a ruling/fatwa.

2) Or If the person verbally asks a maulana the same scenario as mentioned above to find the ruling, instead of writing in email. Does doing this cause divorce? would that count just because that person asks VERBALLY to find the ruling.
