How to file a patent

You should prepare the patent application with sketches or diagrams of how your invention would function or could function, what materials you would need to have, what components or systems would be required for the invention to work, and how the invention works. Then, if you are not using patent counsel, you can directly file Utility patent applications, Provisional applications and many other types of Office correspondence to the USPTO via the Internet using EFS-Web, the USPTO electronic filing system for patent applications.
