After the non-provisional utility patent application, or non-provisional design patent application, is filed at the USPTO, it is reviewed by a patent examiner to ensure that the claimed invention meets all patentability requirements. This process is called “prosecution.” It is expected that you will receive one or more communications from the USPTO about the non-provisional utility patent application. The communications can come in the form of objections and rejections relating to a number of possible issues.
