Yoreh Deah Siman 267 Seif 40

מ יְצִיאַת הָעֶבֶד בְּרָאשֵׁי אֵיבָרִים, אַף עַל פִּי שֶׁהוּא קְנָס, נוֹהֵג בַּזְּמַן הַזֶּה,  שֶׁאִם בָּאוּ עֵדִים בַּדָּבָר אֵינוֹ יָכוֹל לְהִשְׁתַּמֵּשׁ בּוֹ. וְיֵשׁ מִי שֶׁכָּתַב שֶׁמְּשַׁמְּתִין אוֹתוֹ עַד שֶׁיִּכְתֹּב לוֹ גֵּט שִׁחְרוּר.

Seif 40

And there are some who write that we excommunicate him until he writes him a document of release.
