A Statement of Use is a specimen and sworn declaration that your proposed trademark is currently in use in commerce. If you file a 1 (b) intent to use application you are required to submit a statement of use form to the United States Patent and Trademark Office. Failure to submit a statement of use timely will result in your trademark becoming abandoned.
To be considered timely, a Statement of Use must be filed within six months of the issuance date of the Notice of Allowance (NOA), or within a previously granted extension of time to file a Statement of Use.
If you submitted your application with True Lawyer you will be notified once its time to submit the Statement of Use. If you applied for your application pro se we can help you.
