The filing of a Provisional Application for Patent is the fastest, lowest cost way to begin protecting your invention.  Upon filing you will have instant "patent pending" status for your product labeling or marketing and a priority filing date from the U.S. Patent Office.

More importantly, when you later file a Non-Provisional Utility Patent, you may claim priority benefit of your original provisional filing date.  Bay Area IP can help you file a Provisional Application for Patent quickly and easily.

If you have little money, and need to either buy time to raise funds or for market testing your invention before investing in a Utility patent, then the below lowest-cost Provisional Patent Application services will enable you to at least have a Guaranteed legally valid "Patent Pending" filing on the core idea of your product and/or service idea until you are ready to file the full patent application within the one year allowed.  If your budget is not extremely tight, and better patent strength and scope is still important to you, then at least the "Drafting Basic" level is highly recommended.
