What are the steps to order my Texas birth, death, marriage, or divorce vital records?
- First, download, complete, and print out the State of Texas required authorization form for the type of verification letter or certificate that you need to obtain for yourself or a family member. Then you’ll need go get the form notarized by a notary public. After it’s been correctly notarized, scan and email the authorization form back to Birth Certificate Texas.
- Second, scan and email a valid (can’t be expired) photocopy of your U.S driver’s license, U.S passport, U.S state ID card, U.S military identification or U.S permanent resident card (Green Card) to Birth Certificate Texas. Please make sure it’s not a blurry photocopy of your ID, because if it’s a non-clear copy, Texas Vital Records could reject your records request, and we don’t want this to happen to you.
- Third, download one of Birth Certificate Texas’s PDF order forms, complete it, and scan and email the order form back to us. You can also take a photo of the completed order form and email the order form to us once it has been fully filled out.
- Finally, visit FedEx.com, UPS.com, or USPS.com to create and purchase a prepaid return shipping label, or you can purchase one in person at any local shipping place in your area. Once you create the prepaid shipping label online, you will download the PDF shipping label that you’ll receive from the shipping courier.
Then email us the shipping label PDF so we can print out it on our end and we’ll use it to mail all your documents back to you once we have obtained your requested documents from the Texas Vital Records office in Austin, TX.
