So, I've never been divorced before, and I've always done our taxes. That said, I have no idea how Married Filing Separately works.
My date of separation was in March of this year (2013), and under Virginia state law, the divorce will not be final until March 16, 2014.
As this has been a rough separation, when it comes time to do my taxes for 2013, I suspect that my ex will refuse to give me her W-2. In that situation, do I file the taxes for my portion and ignore her W-2, or do I have to somehow convince her to give me that paperwork?
