Step 3
Write the utility patent application. A nonprovisional patent application includes several sections including a discussion regarding prior related patents identified during the patentability search, a description of the idea, and a claims section. The claims section specifically lays out what the idea is. The document itself will probably go between the attorney and the inventor several times in order to make sure the idea is properly described. Meanwhile, drawings may need to be developed that aid in the understanding of the idea being patented.
