15. It is not easy to get the ID card in Texas

I have a nephew who is 55 years old. He is autistic and disabled. He was cared for by his parents who both passed away. His aunts (I am one) and uncle have taken over his care. He did not have an ID card nor did he have a birth certificate although he was born in a Dallas hospital. Only a close relative can get a certified birth certificate. I was deemed not a close enough relative to get his birth certificate copy because I was not a legal guardian. I had to jump through hoops, even cry at the county office to get a certified copy of his birth certificate. That was before I even took him to the Dept of public safety to get his ID card. There we had to wait in a crowded room with not enough seats for over an hour before he was called. This was about five years ago, since then, Texas has closed many of the public safety offices. so it is even more difficult to get the ID card or renew your Drivers license. Many people don't apply for cards or update their name and address because of the long wait and the hassle.
