If you were divorced before the end of 2022, you will file as single or possibly head of household, if you are the custodial parent of the children. You will not file as married. Your filing status is determined as of the last day of the tax year.
Am I Head of Household?
If you qualify as Head of Household, when you enter your marital status (single or married filing separately) into MyInfo, and then enter your qualifying dependent, TurboTax will offer HOH as your filing status.
Your statement "I divorced this year" is confusing...if you mean you became divorced in 2023 ("this year") then for 2022 you were still married, and would have the choice to file as married filing jointly, married filing separately, or *maybe* Head of Household for 2022.
In the MY INFO tab the interview firsts asks your MARITAL status as of the last day of the year you are filing for and then as you complete the rest of that section all the available FILING status will be figured out for you by the program ... you don't have to determine anything else.
