All of the forms on this page are for use in patent applications filed on or after September 16, 2012. Forms for use in patent applications filed before September 16, 2012, may be accessed here. Forms to request participation in the Patent Prosecution Highway (regardless of application filing date) may be accessed here.

The expiration date at the top right-hand corner of each page of certain forms is a requirement of the OMB approval process under the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) of 1995, and does not indicate a date beyond which the forms are invalid.

All forms are provided in Adobe's PDF format. You must have Adobe Acrobat reader installed on your computer (at minimum, Acrobat 5.0 is required). 


IMPORTANT NOTICES AND REMINDERS REGARDING USE OF PATENT FORMS

The Office provides forms to the public to use in certain situations to assist in the filing of correspondence for a certain purpose and to meet certain requirements for patent applications and proceedings. Use of the forms for purposes for which they were not designed is prohibited.

No changes to certification statements on the Office forms (e.g., oath or declaration forms, terminal disclaimer forms, petition forms, and nonpublication request form) may be made. For examples of certification statements appearing on Office forms, visit Forms, Frequently Asked Questions .

The existing text of a form, other than a certification statement, may be modified, deleted, or added to, if all text identifying the form as an Office form is removed.

The presentation to the Office (whether by signing, filing, submitting, or later advocating) of any Office form with text identifying the form as an Office form by a party, whether a practitioner or non-practitioner, constitutes a certification under 37 CFR 10.18(b) that the existing text and any certification statements on the form have not been altered other than permitted by EFS-Web customization.

See 37 CFR 1.4(d)(3).


Correspondence filed in the Office for a patent application, patent, or a reexamination proceeding may be signed by either an S-signature (a signature between forward slash marks -> /yournamehere/) or a handwritten signature. See 37 CFR 1.4. >> Read more

NOTE:  To report a problem with a fillable patent form, please e-mail ebc@uspto.gov.


To apply for a patent under 35 U.S.C. 111, transfer the ownership of a patent, or request other actions related to patents, certain information specified in the Patent Laws (Title 35, United States Code) and Rules (Title 37, Code of Federal Regulations) must be submitted to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). The USPTO provides patent forms to the public to use in certain situations, but, in almost all situations the USPTO does not require use of a form, or even provide a form, to submit the information required. The patent forms provided below were designed as a guide to assist patent applicants and patentees in making certain limited submissions to the USPTO. Use of the patent forms for purposes they were not designed for is not advised. The Patent Laws and Rules should be your primary guide to what information must be submitted and how it must be submitted. Any submission that meets all requirements of the Patent Laws, Rules, and Orders and Notices of the Director of the US Patent and Trademark Office, will be accepted, whether or not it is similar to any of the patent forms provided below. A submission may not be accepted, even if it is identical to a patent form provided below, if in a specified case, it does not meet all the requirements of Patent Laws, Rules, and Orders and Notices. For current fee amounts, please click here. A surcharge will be due if the basic filing fee is not paid on filing. Other consequences may occur if the proper fees are not paid or if the required action is not taken.

For general assistance in completing the patent forms below or to request paper copies of the forms, contact General Information Services Division at 1-800-786-9199 (1-800-PTO-9199) or 571-272-1000, and select option 2 .

About the required Adobe Acrobat Viewer:

All forms are provided in Adobe's PDF format. You must have Adobe's free Acrobat reader installed on your computer.

NOTE: The USPTO cannot assist you with the installation and configuration of the Acrobat reader on your system and printer. When Adobe Acrobat reader is installed as a browser plug-in, it sometimes exhibits problems printing complex documents. If you experience such problems, (which may even cause your browser application to fail), use your browser's right mouse button to click on the form hyperlink, save the form file on your machine's hard disk, and open it locally in the Acrobat reader.

The free Adobe Acrobat reader plug-in does not permit you to save a partially-filled form for later use. In order to save a partially-filled Fillable PDF form for later use, you must purchase and install the full Adobe Acrobat 5 software application or an equivalent product that has form data saving and editing capability.

Acrobat 5.0 (minimum) is required for all forms >> Links for downloading plugins or viewers
