FREE Shipping

A Section 8 Declaration of Continued Use is required by the USPTO to demonstrate that you are currently using your trademark in commerce or have a valid excuse for not using it. If 5 years have passed since you registered your trademark, you need to submit a Section 8 Declaration of Continued Use to maintain ownership of your trademark. LegalZoom can help you quickly prepare and file a Section 8 Declaration of Continued Use with the USPTO. Here's how it works.

Our 3-Step process

Here's how it works:

  1. Complete the Questionnaire
    Complete our quick and easy questionnaire and submit a sample of your mark as it is currently used in commerce (or your excuse for non-use). If you need assistance, our customer care specialists are here to help.
  2. Review Your Information
    Once your Section 8 Declaration of Continued Use is completed through the LegalZip® system, we'll email it to you for review and electronic signature.
  3. Final Wrap-Up
    Once we receive your e-signature, we'll file your Section 8 Declaration of Continued Use with the USPTO. You'll receive an email from us verifying that your submission is complete.
