Certified copies of birth certificates are $23.00 each.
Note: If you are needing a birth certificate to obtain a passport or a Drivers License, please contact your county of birth as you will need to submit a "long form" birth certificate, issued by the county of your birth, to the passport office.
Who can purchase a Birth Certificate? - Qualified applicants are defined as the person named on the certificate, i.e., mother, father, brother, sister, spouse, grandparent, legal guardian or legal representative. Applicants must provide valid identification.
Note: Birth records are considered "closed" for 75 years, except to qualified applicants. Only Certified copies can be issued.
For those born in Grimes County- birth records from 1903 to present are available. Some earlier births were filed as Delayed Birth Certificates (records filed more than 1 year after birth).
For those born in other Texas counties - Abstract Birth Certificates (short form) can be accessed by the County Clerks' Office via the state remote birth system. The remote birth site access begins in 1926. Anyone needing a birth certificate prior to 1926 must contact the county of birth. Remote access is not available for those having a Delayed Birth Certificate. A remote birth certificate cannot be used to obtain a passport.
All new probate and guardianship cases must be e-filed by an attorney.
Effective June 1, 2018 all guardianships in the state of Texas must be registered with the Judicial Branch Certification Commission (JBCC). All guardianship applicants will be required to submit certain information to JBCC, which will be registered in the guardianship database. A hearing on a Guardianship Application cannot be heard until all requirements have been met. Below are links to the JBCC registration and Identogo for those that are required to submit fingerprints in guardianship of the estate cases that exceed $50,000.
Should you have any questions about this process, please call Carolyn Neuman at 936-873-4407.
