Order Records Locally

You can get vital records (birth/death certificates, marriage licenses, and divorce decrees) locally. Visit the local county, city, or district where the event occurred. Some counties, cities, and districts in Texas can issue short form birth certificates no matter where the birth occurred. 

Counties, cities, and districts set their own hours of operation, fees, and procedures for requests. They may also have more than one location. Please contact your local clerk or registrar to get information for your area.
