My year-and-a-day of separation will be complete on November 28 and I plan to file for my absolute divorce that day. As such, it is nearly impossible that the divorce will be heard and granted before the end of the year. Will I have to file as married for 2016 even though we are legally eligible to be divorced, and are simply waiting for the necessary actions to take place? We have a notarized separation agreement, including a defined alimony arrangement, that we have been complying with since the separation last November, however, that agreement has not been filed as a court document.
What about “Head of Household”?
