Welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you.

Because you are still married, you can either file jointly or separately. Neither of you can file as single.

Using the married filing separate filing status is the LEAST ADVANTAGEOUS filing status.

Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thank you and best regards,

Barb
