I live outside of the U.S can
Birth Certificate Texas still help me?
Yes, but you have to do some extra steps first.
By Texas law, for any person or company to talk with or order your vital records documents from the State of Texas you must first give them written permission to do so by signing and getting a state authorization form notarized.
Since you’re not located in the United States the State of Texas will NOT accept a foreign country’s notary stamp on the authorization form unless you get the document apostilled at the U.S Embassy or a U.S consulate in the foreign country that you’re currently living in.
