Loganville, GA asked in Tax Law for Georgia

Q: Can I file 2021 taxes married, but separated if I am separated now?

My husband and I are divorcing. He never filed 2021 taxes. I went ahead and filed those taxes 2 weeks ago. I filed married but separate. My lawyer is not able to give me tax information. I don't know how to proceed. My husband is facing possible criminal prosecution. I separated from him 2 months ago for child molestation. He had control over our finances and I never knew the true status of the taxes.
