After a patent is filed, the USPTO typically mails back the filing receipt before assigning the patent to an examiner. How long does it typically take to assign an examiner? When/how does the inventor first learn who the examiner is?

  • After your filing has been accepted and reviewed an examiner is assigned. Using Public Pair at the USPTO site you can get the information by a search for the application number
