I have a nephew, who is currently 14 years old (turning 15 this year) who I would like to adopt. I am still legally married with my then Filipino husband (now a US citizen), however, we are already separated. We were married in the Philippines when he was still a Filipino citizen. We are on the process of getting a divorce here in the US. Am I able to adopt my nephew without a finalized divorce decree? Or should I wait for a divorce decree then file a petition for recognition of a foreign judgment of divorce?

You can adopt but it must be joint with your husband. Better wait for the divorce to be final like you said in your last sentence.
