Maintenance Fee Management

To keep your patent enforceable for its full 20-year term, you must pay mandatory maintenance fees to the USPTO at 3.5, 7.5, and 11.5 years after the patent was granted. Maintenance fees for utility patents are based on the size of the patent owner.

You can pay maintenance fees from 6 months before to 6 months after the due date. If you miss the 6-month grace period, your patent rights lapse. DLS can help you manage your maintenance Fees.

My experience working with Delta Legal Services℠ has been great. They are professional and responsive. They deliver high quality results. They transformed the Invention Disclosure document that I wrote into a patent document that is very professional and high quality. When we reviewed the patent document together, I found they really understood the essense of the invention. They also took our feedback in full in refining the patent document. The entire process – working with Delta Legal Services℠ – was very smooth.

Jubin Dana is a true professional. His knowledge of technology as well as the patent process is exceptional. He is able to translate technical innovations into patents that get approved. Best of all he is responsive and has a commitment to meeting the needs of the innovator. Delta Legal Services℠ provides services that are comparable to the most expensive big firms at a much better rate.

– C.S.

Unexpectedly finding ourselves in need of a patent attorney could have been very overwhelming, as we had little to no experience in this area. It was immediately evident that Jubin was very knowledgeable, and the complexity of our situation really allowed his expertise to shine. He was extremely thorough and detailed in explaining convoluted things to us in clear, laymen terms, so we could collectively formulate a winning strategy for our case.
