What filing status should I file if I am married, but have not lived with my spouse since 2016?

I have 4 dependents from a previous relationship that I take care of in my own home.

How are you legally related to the "4 dependents from a previous relationship" that you take care of? Did they live with you all year?

In the interview you will choose the marital status as married and then choose to NOT file a joint return and when you enter in any qualifying dependents the Head of Household filing status will be suggested.
