Trademark Timeline Infographic
Waiting for a trademark to register can be stressful. On average, it takes 11 months for a US trademark application to mature to registration. We’ve provided a helpful timeline to show you what to expect during the process.
There are a few different filing bases for a US trademark application. The below timeline is in reference to an actual use application or an application based on a business already using the mark in commerce.
When filing a trademark application there are non-obvious deadlines along the way. If you receive an Office action make sure you respond to satisfy the United States Patent and Trademark Office’s Examiner request before the deadline. Failing to do so will end in the abandonment of your application and the loss of your filing fees.
