A: Foreign applicants must be represented by a U.S. trademark attorney for applications filed at the USPTO. Fees vary among attorney, costs are determined by number is trademarks, number of class/categories, etc. If trademark is already registered in another country, it may be eligible to maintain a priority date. Consult with a trademark attorney in the U.S.

A: Yes. You can definitely register in the U.S. You just need to use an Attorney from the U.S. or a contact here with a valid address.
