I unfortunately got divorced last year (became final in October) and was wondering how that affects my tax return - I'm a student so I don't really have any income, but my ex-wife had earnings. Do I just file a personal return and exclude everything from my wife, or do I have to file two returns for the different time periods?

Thanks so much for anyone who can help or at least point me in the right direction,
