If someone hasn't been with their spouse after June 30 of the tax year, has one or more of their dependent children (or stepchild or foster child) living with them, and meets a few other rules, they can file as Head of Household, not the non-existent SINGLE head of household or as single.

If you allowed email, someone could sent this info to you privately rather than post it publicly.
