as a single person unless you have kids with you and then perhaps as a head of household.

You each file single. One takes head of household if there are kids. Decide how the deductions should be taken for real estate taxes. You had a lawyer. You are best served by discussing this with your lawyer.

With the Judgment of Dissolution being entered you can't file jointly anymore.

Single and perhaps head of household. Talk to an accountant.

If your were divorced in June of 2012, your marital status at the end of the year should control. It would appear that you'd file either "single" or "single head of household" as the case might be. You are no longer married and would not file jointly.
