*What’s Not Included in Our Patent Service Fees

In all of our above fees regarding the various patent services, our fee does NOT include any applicable USPTO fees (or any other governmental fees). For example, the provisional filing fee may be $65 for micro-entity and $130 for a small entity.

Additionally, our fees do not include the cost to prepare any required drawings (figures).

However, for provisional patent applications, formal drawings are not required and even plain hand drawings may be sufficient for provisional filing purposes, so that may be an option to keep costs down.

However, a non-provisional patent application and a design patent application, as well as a PCT patent application all require formal patent drawings – if drawings are required.

We can further discuss what to expect and plan for with drawing costs.

**PCT International Patent Application Drafting and Filing Costs

The above quoted cost is if there is a strong parent application to base the PCT application off of, e.g. a strong provisional or strong non-provisional.

Whereas, if the PCT application is a first filing, then see the above pricing with respect to non-provisional patent applications.

And lastly, see the above note under * with respect to other costs, i.e. USPTO filing costs and the cost to have drawings prepared.
