An amendment to allege use is a sworn statement stating that your trademark is currently used in commerce in connection with the goods and/or services applied for in your trademark application. The amendment to allege use is filed before the publication of your trademark and, at minimum, must include:
- The applicable government fee(s);
- A specimen showing the mark used in commerce; and
- A signed declaration stating that the mark is actually used in commerce.
However, if you have not begun to use your trademark in connection with all of the goods and/or services listed within the application, you may either (i) file a request to divide the application or (ii) cancel the unused classes of goods from the application.
