Utility Patent Pricing – Utility Patent Services and Fees

An important step in applying for a utility patent through LegalZoom involves obtaining professional patent drawings. When you choose LegalZoom to file your utility patent application, you will receive a consultation and review by a USPTO-registered patent attorney or agent. The utility patent cost includes up to four pages of patent drawings prepared by a professional patent illustrator. You will also receive answers to your legal questions and a patent assessment – all for an affordable price. For an additional fee, you can request a comprehensive patent search for patents similar to your invention. A registered patent agent or patent attorney will then review and advise you on up to three of the inventions in your search results. Get started filing a utility patent with the U.S. Patent Office through LegalZoom by completing a simple online questionnaire and submitting sketches or drawings of your invention. A USPTO-registered patent professional will provide a consultation by phone and a technical illustrator will draft professional patent drawings

*The government filing fees include the basic filing, search and examination fees for utility patent applications, and do not include the required issuance fee once an application has been reviewed and allowed by the USPTO. Additionally, an inventor's entity type is based on several factors. We can help you determine your entity type and applicable filing fees through our simple online questionnaire. Most LegalZoom customers fall under either small- or micro-entity status.
