If you are looking for a copy of your birth certificate, The Department of State Heath Services can provide you with a copy of your Texas birth certificate. You can place an order on their official website, and get all the information you need.
Listed is the basic process that you would have to follow to get a Texas birth certificate; for anyone born in Texas within the last 75 years, you must first satisfy the requirements for requesting the records that you want. The website itself lays out all of the details but, if you’re trying to get records for someone else, the restrictions will be a little tighter on the records that you are requesting for that person:
You need to provide a Texas driver’s license or some other form of government issued identification to request copies.
You need to have the information sent to a U.S. address, a U.S. territory or commonwealth, or you use an FPO or APO address.
You will also need a valid credit card, this will be used for charging the fee for the information that you are requesting.
If all the requirements are met, the state of Texas will process the request within 10-15 business days, and send you out your Texas birth certificate. There are a few drawbacks when trying to get information directly from the state.
Commercial websites can do a birth records search across all the information available from every state including Texas. All this information is easy to access through this user friendly website. As long as you’re not looking for an official copy of your birth record, you’ll be better off going on a commercial website that gives you fast, efficient service and a wider coverage than any state can provide.
