Your martial status is determined on the LAST day of the year.Thus if you were not married on Dec 31, 2015 - you are considered as not married for all 2015.That is for tax purposes only.For other purposes determination might be different.Please let me know what specific credits are you going to carry forward and in which state do you live.
