You can usually get patent pending status in a week or less by filing for a provisional application. They are inexpensive, and are great tools for inventors on a budget. I professionally draft each provisional application, and credit the fee towards the utility application in the future. Feel free to contact me if you would like to get your invention patent pending using a provisional application.
