My spouse has been in the United States for 10 years and overstayed a visitors visa. We have been married for 3 years and have two children together. For 2011 tax year I filed as head of household b/c my spouse does not have an SSN and it requires one even when filing as married filing seperately. Now it's the 2012 tax year and I found out my spouse can use an ITIN, however, I understand this cannot be done w/an expired passport. The country my spouse is from has changed its name so the process to get a new passport is estimated to be 5-6 months. I wonder if filing as head of household will cause problems w/grn card app even though we have many ways to prove this is a bonifide marriage - kids, utilities, dr office visits etc . My hope is when grn card/SSN is issued, taxes can be ammended
