If your child lives with you you may qualify for head of household status if you, though married, file a separate return, your spouse has not lived in your home during the last six months of the tax year, and you provided more than half the cost of maintaining as your home a household that was the main home for a qualifying child for more than one half of your tax year.
See www.irs.gov/taxtopics/tc353.html

If there are no children you can either file a joint income tax return or married filing separately. The income tax filing of married filing separately typically results in the highest level of taxes being paid.
