You can file your own return for 2017 using the "Single" Filing Status.  If you provide a home for a Qualifying Child or Relative, you may also qualify to use the "Head of Household (HOH)" Filing Status.  Check out the TurboTax FAQ below for the qualifications you must meet to use the HOH Filing Status.

You cannot do that, since you were not legally married. You must amend those as well.
