File Petition to Revive Online
Applicant may electronically file through the Trademark Electronic Application System (TEAS) a petition to revive the abandoned application (return the application to active status) if the delay in responding the Office action letter was unintentional. The form provides step-by-step instructions for filing the petition.
A Petition to Revive includes a signed statement by someone with first hand knowledge of the facts stating that the delay in responding was unintentional, a $100 petition fee and a response to the unanswered office action letter. THE PETITION TO REVIVE MUST BE RECEIVED IN THE OFFICE WITHIN TWO (2) MONTHS FROM THE MAILING DATE ON THE NOTICE OF ABANDONMENT. A Petition that is not timely filed will be denied.
If a response was not filed because the applicant did not receive the Office action, the applicant must still file a Petition in order to revive the application. The applicant need not include a response to the Office action.
If the Petition to Revive is denied, the applicant may re-file the application, pay the required filing fee, and begin the application process again.
