Birth certificate requests on hold for now, says Liberty County Clerk

If you are planning to get a passport or driver’s license and need a new copy of your Texas birth certificate, you will have to wait a few days more, according to Liberty County Clerk Lee Haidusek Chambers.

That is because the state switched to a new printer system without providing an adequate supply of certificate paper to county clerk’s offices. Liberty County is impacted, Chambers said.

“Harris County has called our office looking for paper, too. They don’t have any either,” the clerk said. “It’s a special kind of paper designed for birth certificates. It’s a problem happening everywhere in the state at the moment.”

Until further notice, birth certificate requests in Liberty County are on hold. Chambers suggests that anyone who has an urgent need for a birth certificate should call other county clerk offices to check on paper availability.
