Husband and wife now residing in separate States

My client and her husband usually file a joint tax Federal and Hawaii State tax return. Both are now retired. They have a rental property in a Single-member LLC (Michigan) wholly owned by a Multi-member LLC (Hawaii) of which they are both members. Last year the husband moved to Michigan to look after his elderly father and became a Michigan resident.  His wife remains in Hawaii as a Hawaii resident. Can they still file a joint Federal Tax return? What would be their filing status?

The same, unless filing separate is an available option and more beneficial in the two states.

Unless they filed for divorce along the way, they are still married which means they can file a joint return.
