Hello Brad!
   I'm Vietnamese. I make and filed application utility in USPTO via EFS-Web by myself. I'm e-file was authentication by USPTO. I have some question to need you help.
 When I check in my Private Pair I see some information look like under :
 
1 - In the Tab Application Data they show : Class / Subclass:   224/430000 -> Is this line mean my application was classified or not classified yet ?

2 - In the Tab Application Data they show  : Group Art Unit:   OPAP -> What does this mean ?

3 - How to USPTO calculate number of months to the First Action ? USPTO will be calculate month to the First Action begin the month after month of filing date or begin the month after month of Status date ?

4 - In the Tab First Action Prediction they show :
Application Serial#: 17854269
Group Art Unit: OPAP
Application Status: 30 Docketed New Case - Ready for Examination
Filing Date: 07-JUL-2022
No. of months to First Action: 7


What will I do now ? I need some advice from you for my case .

Do you have service to answer for Office Action of USPTO ? If you have this sevice I want to use and I ready to pay for this service.


Hoang Nguyen.

Thank you!

Brad

Hi,

1.  This means your invention was classified into those classes.  More on classes here:  https://www.uspto.gov/patents/search/classification-standards-and-development

2.  This is the processing group.  It goes there first and then to an Examiner.

3. and 4.  In your case they are expecting the report from the examiner in 7 months from the date you accessed that page.  So this will be around September 2023.

Hello Brad!

   Thank you for your respond.

In my Private-Pair they show : Status date is : Aug 17 2022.

Number of months to the First Action : 7.
 
Is mean USPTO calculate the First Action from September 2022 + 7 months so The First Action may be around March 2023. Is this true ?

I need to use only service to answer for First Office Action from USPTO. Do you provide this service ? My application utility is Non-Provisional.

Thank you!
