All access to file applications or follow on documents using EFS WEB are down.  We are currently unable to access any applications to give you a status or resolve an issue using EFS WEB.  We DON’T currently have an ETA for this system.  Please review the USPTO guide lines for submitting documents that apply to your situation.  If you still have your current issue on the next business day please resubmit your email or call the USPTO offices to resolve your filing problems.
