Answer

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

You state… with having any intention of divorce.. you probably meant without any intention. Confirm this. Furthermore, what exactly was written on the document and did you refer to a civil divorse?

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
