How do I get a copy of my file with the USPTO?
« on: July 15, 2021, 02:30:09 PM »
I've spoken with USPTO by phone awhile ago, and was told it is possible to get a copy of my file, possibly just the correspondence.  How do I go about this?

You must first have an account with the patent office and link the application to your account.  Once you have that, you can view it through Patent Center or PAIR:  https://www.uspto.gov/sites/default/files/documents/Patent%20Center%20User%20Guide_Beta.pdf

I would call the USPTO Assistance group and have them walk you through the process and needed forms step by step: 1-866-767-3848

I've tried that.  It tells me 'Data is Unavailable'.  I also have numbers for provisional and utility applications which cannot be found, they've been unavailable for about two years now.

If they are unavailable that usually means those applications are not properly linked to your account so it will not give you access.  You should call the USPTO and ask them how to give you access to each of those application numbers.
