How do Provisional Patent Applications Work?

Make sure you understand exactly how they work, keeping in mind they only last for 12 months and are only useful if you eventually convert it into a non-provisional patent app!

Should I request a patent search?

It's the first step before a patent application! First, you learn how patentable your invention may be. If it's not very patentable, don't waste time and money on a patent app. Second, it may help you increase your patentability. By seeing what is similar, you can improve your invention around other existing invention and increase patentability.
