How fast can I receive a new
Texas death certificate copy?

If Birth Certificate Texas receives the four required documents we need from you we will rush file a Texas death certificate application on your behalf within 24 hours during a normal Monday-Friday work week and minus all government holidays.

This means we must receive all your correct and completed paperwork by 4pm CST Mon-Fri to be able to file your death certificate application with Texas Vital Records within 24 hours or on the next business day by 4pm CST.

Then as of August 15th, 2022 when the new Texas Vital Records third-party requestor (companies like ours) policy went into effect it will take the State of Texas 48-72 hours to issue a new Texas death certificate from the business day that we hand submitted your application to their office.

Once they notify us that your Texas death certificate has been issued we will go pick it up and mail it back to you with the prepaid return FedEx or UPS shipping label that you are required to provide us by email when you place your order.
