  • Many of us file a US priority application and a corresponding international application via the PCT.

  • The result is that one can have two applications pending before the USPTO at the same time.

  • Unity of Invention

If the applicant already has a US priority application on file, then the applicant must pay for national stage entry (filing fee, search fee, examination fee).
