Replacement of Provisional Application with a Non-Provisional Application

  • A normal non-provisional application, claiming priority from the provisional application, must be filed within one year of the provisional application filing date. (No extensions/exceptions are available.)

  • Allow sufficient time (at least three months) for a patent search and then the revision of the provisional application.

  • Costs: $900 basic patent search (low-complexity, single-focus subjects) plus (if the provisional application is substantially complete and professional) a credit of $1,000 against the basic application preparation fees.

  • Hourly-rate ($240/hr.) fees are also available.
