Hiring an intellectual property attorney to file for your patent can cost up to 10,000. While this figure may seem discouraging, you don't have to pay for the whole thing at once. Most patent attorneys allow their clients to pay fees as they become due, and many will write out an estimated timeline of events and fees.
If at all possible, hiring an intellectual property attorney is advisable. The intellectual property field is very specialized and a patent attorney will be able to make the strongest possible case for your patent.
