I am widowed NOT remarried, I have a dependent daughter. Why am I getting questions about an agreement with another parent?

You can just say NO to that question.  The question is directed at divorced or never married parents who share custody.  Answer NO and move forward in the software.

@swatsup Just making sure---you are widowed with a dependent child.  For the year that your spouse passed, you can file a joint return.  When you have a dependent child, you can file as Widowed for the next two years after that, and you will still get the same standard deduction as you would have received on a joint return.  After that you would need to file Single --or with a dependent, Head of Household.
