You can get a lot of infromation by reading www.uspto.gov. There are also a lot of books on patenting inventions, you might want to check your local library. It might also be worthwhile to sit down with a local patent agent or patent attorney, many will provide free or low-cost initial consultations. There is a link on the www.uspto.gov website that will allow you to search for patent agents or attorneys in your area.
