There's no status of married filing single. If you're still married as of the end of the year, you can file a joint return if you can agree, or you can file as married filing separately. Where you live doesn't matter.

No married single filing status on the 1040 FIT return BUT married filing separate filing status can be used during the 2014 tax filing season for the 2013 tax year for that purpose and time in your life. MFS filing status on your 1040 FIT return. Married persons. You are married for the whole year if you are separated but you have not obtained a final decree of divorce or separate maintenance by the last day of your tax year. An interlocutory decree is not a final decree. Married Filing Separately If you and your spouse file separate returns, you should each report only your own income, exemptions, deductions, and credits on your individual return. You can file a separate return even if only one of you had income. For information on exemptions you can claim on your separate return, see Exemptions , later. Community or separate income. If you live in a community property state and file a separate return, your income may be separate income or community income for income tax purposes. For more information, see Community Income under Community Property, later. Separate liability. If you and your spouse file separately, you each are responsible only for the tax due on your own return. Itemized deductions. If you and your spouse file separate returns and one of you itemizes deductions, the other spouse cannot use the standard deduction and should also itemize deductions.

Where you two live - has NOTHING to do with it. However, until you are divorced - you MUST file single separate.

sure doesn't matter where you live you can file married separately this might not be a good way however EIC is disallowed and you both have to use the same method, either the standard deduction or Sch A and this sometimes hurts one or other of the spouses you CAN'T file single
