What is the most common reason
why my birth certificate application
could get rejected?

The most common reason why your Texas birth certificate application will 100% get rejected by Texas Vital Records is if you’re a woman and you don’t put your MAIDEN last name and MAIDEN middle name down on the state-required Texas Designation To Obtain a Vital Record form.

Women will put their current last name down instead of their maiden last name or they’ll put their maiden last name down but as their middle name and not use their legally born middle name.

Both ways will get your application automatically rejected by the state. You’ll have to redo and mail us another signed and notarized Texas Designation To Obtain a Vital Record form and pay us our full-service fees for a second time.
