Can I file with the "Divorce" status on Turbo Tax and if so which edition should I use?

Since you were not divorced until 2019, you will need to file as Married Filing Separately or Head of Household (if you have a qualifying dependent and lived apart from your spouse for the entire last 6 months of the year). The only piece of information you will need to include on your return of your ex-spouses is their Name and Social Security number which is required by the IRS for Married Filing Separately. 

Yes, you can still file with TurboTax.  However, if you don't have their SSN, you will need to print and mail your return.

Divorced is not a filing status.  If you are no longer legally married as of 12/31/2018 then your filing status is Single.  Or if you have a qualifying person as a dependent and are providing over one-half the cost to maintain your home you may be able to have Head of Household filing status.

You can file either as Married Filing Separately or Head of Household if you lived apart from your spouse for the last six months of 2018 and have a qualifying dependent and provided over one-half the cost of maintaining your home in 2018.

Okay, I will file “Married Filing Separate”. I’m in the military and I was deployed they last 6 months (separated) of 2018 and no one was in my house hold (no dependent). I will fill my taxes with Turbo Tax and I will email my forms to A representative for verification, is this okay?

You must have lived apart from your spouse for the last six months of 2018 to file as Head of Household.
