  • Provisional Patent ApplicationUse this if . . .
    - You have an invention that you want to protect with a provisional patent in advance of a full, non-provisional patent filing.

    Advantages include:

    - You can use a "Patent Pending" notice on your invention to deter others from copying your invention.
    - You have up to a year to decide whether you need to file a non-provisional application (which is much more costly and time consuming).
    - You establish an official patent application filing date. This is important because the U.S. now follows a "first to file" rule.

    Please note:
    - A provisional patent application will NOT get you a patent on its own. In order to obtain a formal patent, you must follow up the provisional application with a non-provisional application within 12 months. For attorney assistance with filing a non-provisional application use the Rocket Lawyer On Call® attorney service.
