How do delays in I-485 processing affect I-829 Petitions?

Conditional permanent resident status does not begin until the I-485 application is approved, and the I-829 Petition to remove conditions cannot be filed until 21 months after I-485 approval. Thus a delay in I-485 processing will result in a corresponding delay in an investor being able to file Form I-829.
