“My current work status is H1. I married in Nov 2012 and my spouse is still overseas can I claim her as a dependent in 2013.”=============>Sorry no; Spouses are not dependents of each other. Instead, husbands and wives can choose either to file a joint tax return or to file two separate returns. You can file your US return as either MFJ or MFS as long as you are a US resident for tax purposes.
