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. Let us help you get your patent application on file Online Expert.
Important TIP: proper searching can reduce or eliminate potential rejections and objections. And, as a result, it will reduce costs. This is because, it results in these two things. Firstly, better writing of the initial patent application. And, secondly, thorough preparation for potential office actions from the examiner.
Important TIP: Once an application is submitted you cannot add any “new matter” to it. You must file a new application (or a CIP) if you need to add any drawings or description to support your claims after your initial filing.
