May my wife and I filling jointly, She lives in Puerto Rico and I live in MS.

Hi, I moved to Mississippi 7 months ago to work, but my wife and children so far are still in Puerto Rico, at the moment my wife does not work and I'm taking care of the whole family's livelihood. May my wife and I fill out Federal tax form jointly? May I also claim my children in my form even if they are not living with me at this moment?
