TTAB Motion To Extend Time To Answer (Cancellation) Template
If somebody has filed a Petition for Cancellation against your U.S. trademark registration, or your client’s U.S. trademark registration, you can use this template to buy yourself more time (40 days). You can then use that time to do the following:
- Negotiate a co-existence agreement with the petitioning party;
- Find a litigation attorney to represent you or to take over for your client; or
- Draft an answer to the Petition to Cancel and file it in response
Just fill in the blanks and you have yourself a valid Motion to Extend Time To Answer that you can file with the Trademark Trial and Appeals Board (TTAB). This template has been used successfully dozens of times by our partner law firm, JPG Legal. It also includes the required Certificate of Service on the last page.
Note that this template is not for Notices of Opposition against pending trademark applications. If you want a template for a Motion To Extend Time To Answer for an Opposition, go here.
