Microsoft Word Template Included

The provisional patent template includes:

  • Properly formatted MS Word document complying with US Patent and Trademark Office rules.
  • Correct paragraph numbering setup to automatically number paragraphs for you in the proper format.
  • All required sections labeled allowing you to fill them out one-by-one.
  • Advice on how to convert your MS Word file to a pdf format that is acceptable by the patent office (hint: not all pdf converters work well with USPTO requirements).

2024 Update - In January 2024 the US Patent Office now requires patent applications be filed in .docx format.  Our template has been updated to meet this standard.
