How do I know if my application has received an Office Action?

A Trademark Office Action is a written communication from the trademark examining attorney at the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) regarding your trademark application. The Office Action outlines any legal issues or objections to your application and is used to inform you of any requirements or changes needed to move your application forward.

To determine if your trademark application has received an Office Action, you should regularly check the status of your application through the USPTO’s online trademark database, the Trademark Electronic Application System (TEAS). You can also sign up for email notifications from the USPTO to receive updates on the status of your application.

If you receive an Office Action, it is important to carefully review the contents and address any objections or requirements promptly to avoid delays in the processing of your application. If you are unsure of how to respond to an Office Action, it is recommended to seek the assistance of an experienced trademark attorney to help navigate the process.
