Apply for 20 years of patent rights on how your invention works
If your invention is considered novel, nonobvious, and useful by the US Patent Office, you will receive 20 years of exclusive patent rights to your invention.
A complete patent application will be drafted including specifications, claims, and drawings.
Ask legal questions and get legal advice, go over your patent application and request revisions before filing, or anything else you need to discuss with a patent attorney or agent. 60 minutes of phone or email time is included per case. Additional time is billed at the practitioner’s hourly rate.
Once the patent application is filed, you will have legal “patent pending” status while the application is waiting to be reviewed by the US Patent Office.
*$430 govt fee assumes you are classified as "micro entity" by USPTO. If you have filed more than 4 non-provisional patent apps in the past, or have an annual income of greater than $177,117, you may be classified as "small entity" or "large entity" which requires a $785 or $1720 govt fee
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.
