Petition Forms

  • Petition for failure to file a timely response to Office action and Petition for failure to file a timely Statement of Use/Extension Request modified to present 3 different signatures: one for the petition, one for the declaration (if declaration required), and one for the overall submission (response).
  • Petition for failure to file a timely Response to Office action and Petition for failure to file a timely Statement of Use/Extension Request modified to allow update of a correspondence address directly within the form.
  • For Petition for failure to file a Timely Response to Office action, when the first wizard question (two parts) is answered “Yes” and “Yes,” then new error message when it is detected that no response is being submitted with the petition: “You indicated in the form wizard that you were filing a response.  You failed, however, to do the response. You must either change the answer at question #1 to indicate that you are not filing a response, or proceed to do the actual response.”
  • Petition for failure to file a timely Statement of Use/Extension Request enhanced so that, within the same filing, the petition, Extension, and an SOU can be filed at the same time.
  • The front-end edit for some of the Petition forms has been updated so that the forms can only be used when the USPTO has, in fact, sent petition-related correspondence.
  • Petition for failure to file a timely Statement of Use/Extension Request corrected so that any new attorney information will properly be displayed in the text form.
  • Petition for failure to file a timely Statement of Use/Extension Request enhanced to ensure that 1(a) and 1(b) data is now properly parsed from the database so that the display within the form is correct (that is, goods/services already based on Section 1(a), use in commerce, should not appear).
  • The note in the Petition for failure to file a timely Statement of Use/Extension Request at the top of the “Attorney Information” section has been removed entirely, because it is not relevant in the petition context (had been repeated from the stand alone extension request form, where it is relevant).
