You sure seem to have a very negative attitude.  They explained everything to me.  I know a provisional patent application will never turn into a patent, but it does give you the patent pending rights for 12 months.
 
For someone who has been doing this for 15 years it appears you don't read and comprehend to well.

Well, all of your documents (dated and signed) can serve as evidence of your conception for your invention.  The date of conception is very important to determine priority.  

 
Thank you.

"Patent pending rights"?  Ok, you clearly know more about this than I do, because I've never heard of such a thing.
 
One final question (not that you've answered any of the previous ones): if this firm is so well qualified, why are you asking questions of strangers here and not asking your "attorney"?
 
Good luck in your pursuits.

As I stated before, I have only gone as far as doing the patent search and am waiting for the prototype to be finished. A website for a virtual prototype.
 
Please tell me that you are joking about Patent pending?
 
I came here to ask my question since it is a forum.
 
I had no idea my question was going to be so difficult to answer.
 
I could have sent the patent office a disclosure as a proof of evidence of date of conception or I could have used a scientific numbered note book with NOTARIZED and witnessed pages.  I could have sent myself a registered letter and never opened it until I was standing in front of a judge, however, I did not wish to do that.
 
In my opinion I feel the fax and hard copy mail and email which all have dates should be of equal evidence and that is all I am asking, your opinion of me being ripped off by the marketing firm is not relevant, if they do then I will take action against them.
 
Thanks

"I paid for the provisional patent ... they won't pay my application fee to the patent office until ..."
 
They won’t pay your application fee right now (for whatever reason), suggesting that they have written and have a ready-to-file patent application.  Have you read and reviewed the patent application?  Jeff Sonnabend offered his services, perhaps you should have him take a look at the application.  If you haven’t been provided with a copy of the application, I suggest that you request one.
