Processing Times

The processing time starts when we receive your application and payment.

Order through Texas.gov for the fastest service. We process first the completed overnight mail applications submitted with the required expedited fee.

Note: Processing time does not include shipping time. Incomplete applications (includes missing or wrong supporting documents) will be rejected and returned to the customer and considered closed. If a rejected application is resubmitted with corrections, then its processing time starts again.

Record Definitions

Certificate – official, certified copy of record of birth or death.
Verification – a record indicating a birth, death, or marriage/divorce occurred, not a certified record.
Amendment – a request to change or correct information on a birth or death certificate.
