With kindergarten roundup approaching, Texas.gov is reminding all parents of incoming kindergartners that you can order your child’s certified birth certificate online via the Texas.gov Vital Records Application. This official service, offered in conjunction with the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS), offers easy-to-follow instructions in English or Spanish for a highly secure, convenient experience. The price of an online birth certificate order is $22, the same as a walk-in or mail order, and much less expensive than other unofficial online sources.

The response from parents that have already used this online service has been very positive with comments such as, “This request for my son’s birth certificate was as smooth, easy and seamless as I could ever have hoped for,” “Thank you for allowing online ordering of documents while still keeping my child’s information secure,” and “Everything was very clear to read and understand and the explanations were very thorough.”

In addition to ordering birth certificates, you can also use the online application to request marriage and divorce verifications, as well as certified death certificates. All online vital record orders are fulfilled by DSHS. For a quick demonstration of this online application, check out the Texas.gov YouTube channel where you can watch a short video with step-by-step instructions.

Texas.gov is a convenient, fuel-efficient way to complete many other government services online too – pay CHIP enrollment fees, renew a vehicle registration or driver license, order driver records, and much more. With 1,000+ online services, secure payment processing and friendly 24/7 customer service, make things easier on yourself and your schedule by taking it online with Texas.gov.
