The Denton County Clerk's office is responsible for recording and storing county records, including birth certificates, marriage licenses, death records, land records, business and incorporation records and criminal, civil and juvenile county court records. The Denton County Clerk's office also helps support the civil court system, probate and criminal misdemeanor court system for Denton County.
The Bureau of Vital Statistics, which is part of the Texas Department of Health, holds all birth certificate records from 1926 to the present, but the Denton County Clerk holds the collection of birth records from 1910 through 1926. Any one may visit the Denton County Clerk's office and request a copy of a birth certificate, even if the record is maintained by the Bureau of Vital Statistics, because the Denton County Clerk has a direct connection to this database. If the birth certificate is more than 75 years old, it's considered public record.
Individuals requesting birth certificates less than 75 years old must be the person of record or an authorized individual, meaning an immediate family member or a person with the legal right to access the birth record. The Denton County Clerk has put as much of its records as possible on electronic databases in an effort to make it easier for the public to access various types of information recorded in this office, including birth records.
