What is a Divisional Patent?
What if there are two unique inventions in one patent application?
When your patent application gets examined by the patent office, the patent examiner could find there are two different inventions in your application. They will cite the two unique inventions and instruct you to pick one. The patent office will then examine the one that you have picked, or “elected”.
What happens to the invention you chose not to elect? Don’t worry! You can file a divisional application to make sure it’s covered.
