I've filed an application that covers a certain subject matter.
Since filing for that patent, I've developed a need to extend the specification to include further embodiments as well as an extension of the subject matter, but with a base of the first application.
In this case, should I:
- Apply for a divisional application for the second patent with a parent application of the first one, or
- File a brand new application?
Or is there any way I can handle this and get protection for both aspects of the invention?
