File Wrapper - Days Before the First Office Action (FWM_FIRST_OA)

File Wrapper - Days Before the First Office Action (FWM_FIRST_OA) searches for the number of days from the date of filing the application to the date of the first office action for an application or patent.  In other words, if the application was filed on January 1, 2016, and the first office action was on December 31, 2016, the number of days would be 365, and you search for FWM_FIRST_OA:365, the application or patent with this file wrapper will be one of the applications or patents returned with the search result.  

Examples

  • FWM_FIRST_OA:[2000 to *]  -->  Query matches all US patents or applications where the total number of days between the date the application was filed and the date of the first office action is 2,000 or more.  This is a very rare case and probably means that the applications are very important to the applicant/original assignee.
  • FWM_FIRST_OA:365 --> Query matches all US patent and applications where the total number of days between the date the application was filed and the date of the first office action is 365 days.
