Divorcing second wife on paper but not verbally so that I can still be her husband; is such arrangement possible in Islam?

Given the above challenges I am gradually getting less attracted towards 2nd wife and now also feel less obligated for her and as time passes I was thinking of looking at options to formally divorcing her on paper but not divorce her verbally so that religiously I can still continue to be her husband whereas on papers I have divorced , is such arrangement possible in Islam? As don’t want her and her family to have claim on my wealth after I leave this world and want to protect my family of 1st wife and then even drop the idea of having child with 2nd wife as don’t want the child to suffer in such unhealthy future relationship.
