(1) Filing a petition with the clerk of the district court, if service of process is obtained or the first publication is made for service by publication, within 90 days after the petition is filed, except that the court may extend that time an additional 30 days upon a showing of good cause by the plaintiff; or

(2) service of process or first publication, if service of process or first publication is not made within the time specified by provision (1).

(b) If service of process or first publication purports to have been made but is later adjudicated to have been invalid due to any irregularity in form or procedure or any defect in making service, the action shall nevertheless be deemed to have been commenced at the applicable time under subsection (a) if valid service is obtained or first publication is made within 90 days after that adjudication, except that the court may extend that time an additional 30 days upon a showing of good cause by the plaintiff.

(c) An entry of appearance by the defendant shall have the same effect as service of process on the defendant.
