Provisional & Non-Provisional Patent Application Filing Services.
What is Patent Application Filing?
It is the submitting of a complete and properly formatted patent application to the patent office. In addition to the proper forms, a complete and properly formatted patent application includes a good specification, claims, and drawings (if needed). There are two ways that you can file. Firstly, via postal mail. And, secondly, electronically online. We can file to apply for the patent for your invention using either method.
We file all kinds and types of patents.
- Utility, Design, & Plant Patents
- US & PCT (International) Applications.
- Provisional Patent Applications (PPA) Patent Pending Applications
- Provisional to Non-Provisional Conversions & Applications.
- Continuation, Continuation in Part, Divisional, & Substitute Applications.
Important TIP: Once an application is submitted you cannot add any “new matter” to it. You must file a new application or a continuation in part (CIP) if you need to add any drawings or description to support your claims after your initial filing.
. New Matter is content not found in either the written description or drawings, involving a departure from or an addition to the original disclosure. It cannot be added to the application even if supported by a supplemental oath or declaration, and can be shown or claimed only in a separate application.
Important TIP. Proper searching during application writing (before filing) greatly enhances good patent specification writing. Searching also guides writing claims to improve the protection they provide for your invention. Proper searching can reduce or eliminate potential rejections and objections. Thus, it can save you money.
Some notes about Patent Drawings and Flowcharts.
Drawings and flowcharts require proper labeling and numbering for clarity of reference and completeness of disclosure in the written sections of the application’s specification. Moreover, they must be compliant with the submittal requirements of the patent office. We can help with edits and markups as needed.
Drawings and flowcharts not prepared with patent application filing in mind may need to be edited to include proper referencing and labeling prior to filing (or in an additional submittal action). If needed, we can arrange for any edits or new drawings.
