I will provide a quote based on $100/hour for the work needed.  Fees for a simple invention are shown below.  For example a utility patent application including formal drawings and USPTO filing fee can cost as low as $2600.  This is later followed by argument fees, if any, and issue fees.  A search is recommended ($400) but not required.  You can perform your own search.

 • Patentability search if wanted   $ 400

 • Utility application prep.

 • Patent office fees (USPTO) above are for "micro entity" applicants -- those who make less than about $169,000 and have filed less than 5 previous patent applications. USPTO fees are subject to change.
 • One or more arguments are often needed.
 • Normally you file either a utility or design application. Sometimes it is beneficial to file a provisional application, followed within a year by a utility application. Sometimes both a design and utility application can be useful.
