What is the filing date of my trademark and how is the filing date determined?
If you place an order over the Internet through Trademarkia, the filing date is the date the transmission reaches the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) server after an attorney representing you through Trademarkia reviews your matter, in Eastern Standard Time. This is usually 3 or 4 days after you fill out a trademark registration request through Trademarkia. The USPTO relies on a filing date to assess priority among applications. Receiving a filing date does not mean that you have satisfied ALL registration requirements. To obtain a registration, you must comply with all application requirements and overcome any refusal(s) issued by the USPTO during the trademark examination. An attorney that represents you through Trademarkia can help you through the process.
