Not HOH. Why do you want to do so?

If you have lived in the same household as your spouse for the last six months of the tax year, you cannot claim to be Head of Household.  You can, however, file married filing separately if you choose to.

Am I Head of Household?

If you qualify as Head of Household, when you enter your filing status (single or married filing separately) into Personal Info, and then enter your qualifying dependent, TurboTax will offer HOH as your filing status.

Since you seem to have had concerns about a student loan, you should  be aware that if you file as married filing separately, you cannot get any education credits or deductions. <a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="https://ttlc.intuit.com/questions/1894449-married-filing-jointly-vs-married-filing-separately">https...>

Are either of you on an income-based student loan repayment plan?
