The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) "abandons" a trademark application when timely response to an Examining Attorney's office action is not received. You can file a petition to "revive" an abandoned application if your delay in responding to the office action was unintentional.

You must file the petition no later than two (2) months from the mailing date of the Notice of Abandonment. If you never received the Notice of Abandonment, you must file the petition within two (2) months of your actual knowledge of the abandonment and no later than six (6) months from the date the application status was updated to "Abandoned - Failure to Respond or Late Response."

If your application status is "Abandoned - Incomplete Response" or if this Petition to Revive Abandoned Application form is not available for your serial number, you can submit the Petition to the Petition to the Director under Trademark Rule 2.146 form. You also may submit the Petition to the Director form if your application has been partially abandoned.

For these or any other types of attachments, after answering "Yes" to the appropriate wizard question(s), you can then attach the file within the specific part of the form relating to that issue.
