Before proceeding, make sure that you qualify as a "micro-entity."* Micro-entities are entitled to reduced patent filing fees at the USPTO. Inventors who do not qualify as a micro-entity (and who cannot file using the Online Provisional Patent Application program) should seek the assistance of a patent attorney to file their provisional patent application.
