Must you file a provisional patent application before a non-provisional patent application?

Good question! Inventors commonly file a provisional patent application before a non-provisional because it serves as a placeholder before the product is completely finished. Although this is a common practice, it is not required. In other words, you can go straight for the non-provisional patent application if you’d like.

You can learn more about the feasibility and alternatives to filing for patent protection in another piece I recently posted here.
