Time Necessary for Trademark Applications

Do You Have the Time to File a Trademark Application?

After you file your trademark application, it usually takes anywhere from 1 year to 18 months to obtain a trademark registration. In some cases, the registration process can take years to complete. During this time, you have to monitor the status of your application regularly and respond timely and accurately to any questions or requests for information you may receive from the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office (USPTO) regarding your trademark application. You can check the status of your application using the Trademark Status and Document Retrieval tool. If you fail to respond timely to a question or request for information from the USPTO, your application will be considered abandoned. Further, even if you file a timely response, if your response is incomplete or fails to address all of the issues brought up by the USPTO, your application will be refused registration.
