He would file as Married Filing Separately.  Unless you are legally separated according to the laws of your state, then he could file as Single.

How do I know if we are legally separated, I mean we haven't been to court and no divorce papers are filed, we just don't live togather

You would have needed to have a state court grant you as legally separated, so if that did not occur then he would only file as MFS.
