How Do You Get a Paternity Test on “The Maury Show”?

Call 1-888-456-2879, text MAURY to 85000, or apply online at to get a paternity test on “The Maury Show.” You can only apply to be a guest in general as of November 2015, not just for the presentations incorporating paternity tests.

Calling to apply is free, however when texting your tale, standard message costs may apply. To apply online, go to the show’s website and select “Be a Guest” from the drop-down menu. At the bottom of the page, you’ll see a form asking for your name, age, city, state, and daytime phone number. You can post your paternity test story in the box on the right side of the page. You must also agree to the terms and conditions of the website.

As of November 2015, the “Be a Guest” page also has a submission link for “Do you have a family mystery that can be answered with a DNA test?” that leads to a pop-up form similar to the one on the main page. There’s also a “Question of the Day” prompt, which can be addressed through e-mail to if it’s about paternity tests, giving you a third opportunity to apply. Another alternative is to write a letter to “The Maury Show” at 307 Atlantic Street, Stamford, CT, 06901 (although it is not officially mentioned on the site as a way of application).
