A divisional patent or divisional patent application is an application that contains the subject matter of a previously filed application.


Filing Divisional Application

Filing Divisional Application

Divisional applications are used when the main application describes more than one invention and the applicant must divide it into one or more divisional applications, or when the applicant wishes to add claims to the main application (to which no new subject matter can be added).

The procedure for filing a divisional application is different in each jurisdiction, which is why it is important to use an IP expert like SHIP Global IP.
