Do I have to split our tax return?

My wife and I are currently in the middle of a divorce, even though we have been separated since July of 2008. I am active duty Military stationed in Maryland, but I am a Texas resident. She is a part time student and raises our son and resides in Ohio. For the better part of the 2011 tax year, I financially support her due to she was not working. My question is, since I was the sole income provider and the agreed upon monthly support that I gave to her was not taxed, all taxes where taken out from my part of my income, I filed married-joint claiming her and my son as dependents, do I have to split the federal tax return with her?
