Newly Filed Trademark Application from a Divided Application
U.S. Federal Trademark Application Filed from a Divided Application; Initial Processing Started
NEW APPLICATION - DIVIDED - INITIAL PROCESSING; new federal trademark application; not assigned to examiner; new trademark filing; USPTO not assigned examiner; federal trademark application; file a trademark; how long until trademark examined
If you have received this notice, you filed a new application based on dividing a previous application into more than one trademark applications. This is rare, but in some cases, for example, a trademark application for two classes can be later divided into two applications. Also, an application that had an ambiguous description of goods or services may have given rise to more than one class, and the applicant may have decided to divide the one application into several additional applications. In this case, the new divisional are placed in this status until they are moved to the next stage. There is nothing for you to do at this time.
At this stage, there is nothing for you to do but wait. Once an Examining Attorney has been assigned, he or she will evaluate your application and you will receive further communication.
Note that you do not need to take any action. The USPTO will assign the application to an examiner and that examiner must respond to your application within six months of the divisional filing date.
