Ask Patents is a question and answer site for people interested in improving and participating in the patent system. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I filed a patent application before the AIA took effect. The application has now been allowed. I have the option, and would like to take it, to change to micro entity status. I know I meet the criteria, and I know I have to fill out and sign the form, but does it cost anything to submit that form and change my status?
