Will talaaq take place if husband said "I’m gonna divorce you now"?

Q: If a husband wrote in a message "I’m gonna divorce you now"...what does it mean? Does this count as a divorce or not? After he wrote it, he will prepare and send the docs very soon.

A: No talaaq has taken place.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
