How long does it take to obtain a patent after filing a patent application?

While there can be no guarantee that the USPTO will grant a patent, the average time frame from the filing date of a non-provisional patent application to the grant of a patent is between 14 months and 24 months. However, it can take longer if the Patent Office has a backlog of patent applications in the same subject matter area of your invention.
