Default Birth certificate emergency!

Does anyone know if it is possible to get a copy of a San Antonio birth certificate in one day if I go to the office in person?

Yes, I just got one for $24 at the service center at Blanco and West. Took about 15 minutes.

Here's the community service center locations:

also, the fee was $23 but $1 for using a credit card

Thank you! I was hoping so but the website is not terribly informative.

Just to add, you can get your Texas birth certificate in any county in Texas. Same price, same amount of time.

Yup, no kidding.

I think most of us end up getting the birth certificate when it's time for the kid to start kindergarten though...$24 for a piece of paper seems high, but it definitely pays for itself in peace and quiet once they're in school

I went to private school and they never needed my birth certificate, just my baptism certificate...so when I decided to elope when I turned 18, I had to send away to Idaho to get my birth certificate. My mom had never paid to get it.

That is exactly why I needed to get one. NISD is expecting record enrollment this year at Kinder Round-up and I am not risking having the little one bussed to who-knows-where!

BTW, it took only 5 minutes get it at the Blanco Rd office. thanks everyone for the advice.
