†Fees subject to change without notice. Fees are for our service, and do not include any other related costs; e.g., USPTO fees ($80), document shipping fees (none if all electronic), etc. Electronic PPA kit requires Internet access or a computer with a CD-ROM drive. When required, fees quoted assume you provide an electronic draft PPA; otherwise, additional hourly fees may apply. See kit service agreement for details.
‡If you follow the step-by-step instructions in the PPA kit, and ask us by email any questions particular to your case, your PPA is extremely likely to satisfy minimum legal requirements. However, if it is within your budget, you should upgrade to the "Professional Review" level of service, so we can give you feedback on what to add and/or change to bring your PPA into conformity with the minimum legal requirements.
*Because all claims are not prepared first, as is done for regular patent applications, the scope and strength of your future patent protection could be compromised. “Minimum” means that at least your exact invention may be protected. All quality ratings stated are relative to other PPA options.
