The four steps are:  prior art search and patentability evaluation,  application writing,  application filing, and  application prosecuting.
Step 1: Prior Art Search & Patentability Evaluation
The first step when seeking a utility patent is the prior art search and patentability determination. This step includes two services. The first service is the patent, or prior art search. And, the second service is a patentability evaluation.
A Prior Art Search is research to find any products and inventions that are similar to an idea/invention that you want to patent. A professional prior art search is an essential first step in applying for a patent. Contact us to for help with any of the steps to patenting.
A Patentability Evaluation is the research and study of the prior art to determine whether an invention is new and patentable. A patentability evaluation is advised before the inventor files a patent application. At Carson Patents a patentability evaluation is included with our prior art search service. Contact us to for help with any of the steps to patenting.
Step 2: Patent Application Writing
The second step is patent application writing. Patent Application Writing is the writing, editing, and preparing the specification, claims, and drawings for a patent application. Drawings (if needed) are included in our patent application writing patenting service. At Carson Patents writing is the second step to patenting, contact us about writing an application for your invention.
Important TIP: Proper searching before application writing is essential to good specification writing. Searching guides good claim writing by finding existing similar claims. Well written claims improve the protection the patent provides.
Step 3: Patent Application Filing
The third step is patent application filing. Patent Application Filing is the submitting of all the documents, forms, and inventor disclosures needed for an application to the patent office. Filing of the application is included with our patent application writing patent service. The invention is patent pending once it is filed. At Carson Patents filing is the third step to patenting, contact us about filing an application for your invention.
Step 4: Patent Prosecution
The fourth step when seeking a utility patent is patent prosecution. Patent Application Prosecution services are the patent services needed to either  represent a patent application through examination,  appeal an examination decision, or  conduct opposition, reissue, or reexamination proceedings. Prosecution happens after a patent is pending and it occurs both before and after a patent is granted.
Patent Application Prosecution is representing your invention before the USPTO. It is the conducting of communications with the USPTO regarding the examination of a patent application, or a patent. Most frequently it is these three things:  letters to address any rejections or objections made regarding a patent application,  amendments to add new or revised claims, or  the conducting of examiner interviews. Prosecution is the fourth step to patenting. Contact Carson Patents for help to respond to an office action from the patent office.
