In order to fully authenticate a birth certificate, it is often important to legally notarize the original certificate. The first thing that you should do when you need a certified copy of a birth certificate is to contact the state agency (Vital Statistics Agency) that issues birth certificates and request that a new one be sent to you. You will then need to pay the applicable fees associated with receiving a certified copy of the birth certificate. You can also notarize the copy personally by contacting a Texas Mobile Notary to witness the document and use their notary seal on it.
