My wife filed for divorce in May of 2013 and we are currently still separated. She did not work at all during 2013. According to our lawyers, community property/finances ended on the date she filed for divorce. Meaning any money I earned or furniture I bought after the day she filed is not "community" but mine and mine alone. The same goes for her. My question is this...is she entitled to half of the entire return? Or half of the wages earned from the start of the year till the day she filed? And would it make a difference if we file jointly or separately? Thanks.
