Please fill out the online form. Certain fields in the form are mandatory.
If you are not entirely sure about some of the information in the form, do not worry. Just do your best and submit the form.
We will review your submission and draft a formal trademark application. If we have any questions or concerns regarding your mark, we will contact you for clarification.
Once the application has been finalized and approved by you, we will file it with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). We will represent you during the USPTO's examination process.
The Goyeta™ engine will monitor your trademark application and will keep you updated about any developments.
You will have access to the Goyeta™ online automated portfolio management system where you can track your application's status in real time.
As soon as your trademark application has matured to registration, we will send you a report.
You will also receive your registration certificate of registration for your trademark, we will forward the original to you. We will also send you a letter, which will provide full registration details and will explain maintenance, renewal and other important requirements concerning your new registration.
✔ We will review your application for compliance with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office's application requirements, to ensure that the Trademark Office accepts your application and issued the Application (Serial) Number.
✔ If we identify problems with your application that would prevent the USPTO from accepting it, we will notify you and will work with you to fix such problems before filing the application.
✔ We will conduct a knock-out (direct hit) search in the USPTO's records ($55 value) to identify obvious problems to your mark's registration *.
✔ We will send you a knock-out search report by email.
✔ Once we prepare your application, we will send it you for signature. We will guide as needed.
✔ Once you sign your trademark application, we will review it for accuracy one more time and will file the application with the USPTO.
✔ We will file your trademark application electronically, which will result in you paying the reduced fee of $275 (vs traditional paper application for a much higher fee). By filing your application electronically, we will also receive USPTO's confirmation and filing receipt instantly.
✔ We will send you a copy of the USPTO's filing receipt with your Application Number and explain post-filing requirements **.
✔ We will register you with our automated trademark portfolio management system. You will receive automated alerts and status updates regarding your trademark application until registration (an estimated $200 value).
* If we find obvious obstacles (identical marks already registered by others), you will have a choice to either (a) proceed with your original mark, (b) provide us with a substitute mark or (c) get a partial refund of the service fee and the filing fees (in which case we will keep $55 for conducting the search and attending to your application).
** Once your application is filed with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, our services with this fee will have been concluded.
✔ This is the official fee the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) charges to file a new application, for each class of goods.
✔ Please note that each application is examined by the USPTO before approval. It is fairy typical for the USPTO to issue Office Actions at the examination stage. If an Office Action is issued, it will require your response.
✔ If you are not using the mark in commerce yet, you will have to file a Statement of Use before your mark can be registered. There are additional fees and costs related to the Statement of Use.
✔ If you need one of our associated trademark attorneys to assist you with your trademark (including responding to Office Actions), please indicate so in your questionnaire. There is an additional fee for retaining an attorney.
✔ If you decide not to retain an attorney, you will be solely responsible for communicating with the USPTO and responding to any inquiries and Office Actions from the USPTO.
❗ If you are not using your mark in U.S. commerce (across state lines) as of the filing date, we will have to file an "Intent to Use" application for you. In this case, before the Trademark Office can register your mark, you will have to provide a "Statement of Use". There will be an additional $200 fee for the Statement of Use, which includes the USPTO's fee. If applicable, this additional fee will be due in approximately one year or later.
❗ None of these fees (service fee and government fee) cover responses to refusals and other Office Actions, appeals, oppositions, cancellations or other actions beyond filing an application for you.
Once you have submitted your new trademark order, it usually takes 2-3 days for a specialist to review your initial information. If we have questions at that time, (s)he will contact you.
You can see the status of your application, receive updates and comments from your assigned specialist.
Once the application is filed with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), it usually takes somewhere between 5-12 months for the application to mature to registration. There are a lot of variables that affect that time frame.
If the application encounters complications (e.g., Office Actions, oppositions) or if the mark is not yet used in commerce, it may take even longer for the registration to issue. However, you may use your trademark before the registration is issued. In fact, it is advantageous to start using the mark as soon as possible, assuming it was properly cleared.
After we file your application, you should receive an email with your login credentials. You will be able to log into your Intellectual Property Dashboard where you can see the status of your trademark application. You can also use your dashboard for monitoring and managing your other Intellectual Property...
You can monitor the status of your pending application, see reports, documents and important information via the Goyeta™ online portal. You will also receive status updates and notifications by email.
