Patent Filing Basics

You will need to file specifications of your invention. Look through a history of patents in your area to get familiar with the language and structure of a patent. You also need to include claims with your patent application (that is a separate component when filing via EFS so take note). And if you can, I would include drawings.

Application Data Sheet

You will need to complete this and include it with your filing. The form is AIA/14. That form is hard to download on many browsers so you may have to call the PTO. Or get someone you know to send to you. In fact, the form is so hard to download, I cannot even include it as a link. You can try yourself by looking for it on the Forms link above
