How do I file a provisional patent online?

for filing online found on this site. It even provides screen shots of the application in order to literally walk you through the process.

Take a look at my past post titled “how do I write a good provisional patent application,” which discusses what’s required for a sufficient description and drawing. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) has a website containing useful links for entrepreneurs like you attempting to file on their own. Lastly, the USPTO provides a helpful and succinct two-page pamphlet for individuals looking to apply for a provisional patent.

As most of the posts before me have touched on, if you haven’t reached the point of filing then I would suggest hiring an attorney to assist you with this complex transaction. Remember that a provisional patent application should basically mirror your non-provisional application, making it extremely important for your non-provisional application to be as sound as possible. A lawyer will help you accomplish this. Finding the right lawyer for your patent needs is one of the main reasons why LawTrades was started. You can use our marketplace to find a vetted, pre-screened patent attorney. The best part is that you can talk to them for free and get a price quote within just a few minutes of using the platform. Feel free to message me with any questions.
