A: Unfortunately there is a very limited window to revive your trademark application, once abandoned. You would have to sign a statement that letting the application become abandoned was unintentional, pay a $100 filing fee, and then address whatever the problem was that led to the application becoming abandoned.

It's important to know that you only have 2 months to file the petition to revive the application from the date the USPTO issued the abandonment notice. If that period has lapsed, then you probably just have to file a new application.

It's probably worth discussing in further detail with a trademark attorney to see if they have recommendations on moving forward.
