I have filed my past 3 tax returns as "married filing jointly". But Im the lone earner, and my wife was living abroad. I wasnt supporting her in any way. Now, I am planning to file for divorce. Is it a good idea to amend my tax returns now to "married filing separately". I dont mind paying the extra back-taxes but atleast it will show that I wasnt in anyway financially connected to my wife. During the divorce, would they be able to trace back my filing status and would it cause any problems?
