How long a trademark Request to Divide takes?

If you are an active trademark practitioner before the USPTO, the E-Trademarks listserv is a good place to hang out.  Here is a question that a listserv member posted to the discussion group:

Does anybody have an idea of how long it takes to process a request to divide?  That last one I filed took about 2 days, but that was some time ago.  I am currently waiting on one I filed over three weeks ago.  Does anybody know the standard timeline these days?
How long do you suppose it takes for the Trademark Office to act upon a Request to Divide?

Here are the first five responses posted by listserv members:

  • “I did one last month and it took 8 days.”
  • “My last one took 18 days.”
  • “Last one I filed (in the fall) took about 5 weeks.”
  • “7-8 weeks on my last one approved in February.”
  • “I win (?). I have one that has been pending for 5 months.”

It’s interesting to see the fairly wide variation in processing times for this activity at the USPTO.
