Title: searching for provisional patent
Post by robby1140 on Dec 27th, 2007, 11:21am
Can you search for a provisional patent.

I filed for a patent about 11 months after filing my provisional. I have my patent application with me (both hard and soft copy). However, I misplaced my provisional patent. I do have the number and filing date for my provisional though.

If your non-provisional is not published, you should be able to access the non-provisional and the provisional through private PAIR after you take the steps required to get access to private PAIR.   If the non-provisional is published, you should be able to access both your non-provisional and your provisional through public PAIR.

Thanks Issac.

It seems getting access to private PAIR is very complicated. So many forms etc

Is there a better way. Are there people who help in this or do I just have to grind my teeth and do it.
