Q: Should I check the box claiming small entity status if claiming micro entity status on the patent application data sheet

1 Answer | Asked in Patents (Intellectual Property) for Kentucky on

Kevin E. Flynn's answer
I checked the small entity box on one of the first micro entity submissions I made as part of being a micro entity is that you qualify as a small entity. That confused people at the USPTO.

So if you are going to pay small entity fees, check small entity. If you are going to pay micro entity fees and submit the income forms for each applicant and for your company if the idea will be assigned, then do not check the small entity boxes.

Timur Akpinar's answer
You could conduct a few basic internet searches for medical experts in your state. If you've already retained an attorney, you could also check with them as to whether they already have someone in mind who is well-versed in the particular issues that arise in your case. Your attorney might have insight into the knowledge, reputation, reliability, and cost of experts regularly used in the region.

You must disclose all of your assets when filing bankruptcy. You cannot keep this from your husband because he is a co-debtor and Co-owner. He will get notice from the court if not from you.
