Contact a patent practitioner (patent agent or patent attorney) for assistance. The United States Patent and Trademark Office has lists and addresses of patent practitioners in every state.

A patent practitioner will assist you in making the necessary full disclosure of your invention, including any diagrams, and making claims to your invention. They will also help you deal with the inevitable rejections or objections to your application, perhaps submitting amendments or other documentation.

Difference between patent and patent pending?

A patent is a grant from a patent office, such as the United States Patent Office. "Patent Pending" is a phrase that an application for a patent has been filed and is in some stage in the process of obtaining a patent. Thus, a patent can be presently enforced while a patent that is merely pending is unenforceable but can mature into a patent that can be enforced. Once the pending patent matures, the patent owner can sue for back damages or reasonable royalties starting from the filing date of the patent.
