(1) At the date and time of filing, as evidenced by means the secretary of state may use for the purpose of recording the date and time of filing; or

(2) At the time specified in the document as its effective time on the date it is filed.

(b) A document may specify a delayed effective time and date, and if it does so the document becomes effective at the time and date specified.

A delayed effective date for a document may not be later than the ninetieth day after the date it is filed.
