            (i) at the time of filing; and
            (ii) on the date it is filed.
     (b) The division's endorsement on the document as described in Subsection 16-6a-110(2) is evidence of the time and date of filing.

            (i) a delayed effective time;
            (ii) a delayed effective date; or
            (iii) both a delayed effective time and date.
     (b) If in accordance with Subsection (2)(a), a delayed time, date, or both, is specified, the document becomes effective as provided in this Subsection (2).
     (c) If both a delayed effective time and date are specified, the document becomes effective as specified.
     (d) If a delayed effective time but no date is specified, the document is effective on the date it is filed, as that date is specified in the division's time and date endorsement on the document, at the later of:

            (ii) the document is void; and
     (c) if a court order or decree pursuant to Section 16-6a-1007 revokes the document, the court order or decree was entered by a court having jurisdiction of the proceeding for the reorganization of the nonprofit corporation under a specified statute of the United States.
