The Texas Designation To Obtain a
Vital Record form needs to be notarized
can I use a notary in any state?

Yes, a licensed notary public in any of the 50 U.S States can be used by you to notarize the Texas Designation To Obtain a Vital Record authorization form that the State of Texas requires to be completed to allow us (Birth Certificate Texas) to file and obtain a new certified raised seal Texas birth certificate, Texas death certificate, or Texas birth, death, marriage, or divorce verification letter on your behalf.

If you’re outside the U.S you will need to go to a U.S embassy or consulate in your country and have them notarize and issue an apostille certificate on the authorization form. Then scan and email both the authorization form and apostille certificate to us.
