If you already have a provisional specification, The Non Provisional Utility Application is the ultimate step in obtaining a patent. While the provisional patent application establishes a filing date for your invention, but will not result in a patent on its own. The Utility patent provides the broadest protection, and permits its owner to exclude others from making, using, or selling the invention for 20 years if you file the utility application directly, or you can use both to provide 21 years of protection.
A provisional application is the first step in patent application in the United States. It is low-cost and does not need a patent claim while allowing "Patent Pending" to be used. It lasts 12 months from the date the provisional application is filed.
