Can we change a drawing (graphic diagram) in Nonprovisional application

stan

We have only one diagram drawing in the provisional filing describing a process. During implementation we simplified the process to omit one step (item).

My question is: Can we adjust the diagram accordingly for the Non-provisional application?

Thanks

Yes.  The figures in the Non-Provisional do not have to be identical to the ones in the Provisional.

Thank you Brad!

I am almost done with the writings.
I wonder may I ask you to review the Claims page only - it is 3 claims only (one page +4-5 lines)

If yes, can I send it directly to you or should I post the Claims here in the forum?

Appreciate your support.
Stan

Hi,

Sorry Stan but we don't do any review or commenting on the non-provisional and especially not the claims.  It is not worth the risk/liability for us.  It would be like asking a professional home builder to sign off on the house you just built yourself.  There is a ton of risk and no real upside for them to do it.

Hope you understand.

Thanks
