It's theoretically possible. 1. She can't file MFJ with the ex. 2. Her income has to be less than $3900. 3. She has to live with you all year. 4. You have to be able to prove you supported her. 5. It has to be legal for you and her to cohabitate where you live. If you meet all the tests, you claim her as other and all you get is the $3900 exemption.

If you meet all the other rules, and she does not file a joint return with her husband, yes. Claiming a gf if you can does not qualify you to filr as head of household.

If she lived with you all year, yes given the other info. Ask her why she isn't divorced yet.

the requirements are: she lived in your household the ENTIRE year, she did not earn $3900, you provided more than 50% of her support and she cannot be claimed on the tax return of anyone else
