What happens after my document is filed?
After a trademark application is filed, a trademark examining attorney is assigned to
your case who begins to examine your application. Upon examination, you may receive
correspondence from the trademark office which is commonly called an "Office Action".
You will have a specified period of time (generally six months) to respond to any
questions or clarifications raised in this correspondence. Once the Examiner is satisfied
with the application, it may be published for opposition. Provided there is no opposition,
a registration certificate may then be issued.
