(2) Except as provided in sub. (3), if a limited liability partnership or registered foreign limited liability partnership has no registered agent, or its registered agent cannot with reasonable diligence be served, the partnership or foreign partnership may be served by registered or certified mail, return receipt requested, or by similar commercial delivery service, addressed to the partnership or foreign partnership at its principal office, as shown on the records of the department on the date of sending. Service is perfected under this subsection at the earliest of the following:

(1) or (2), service may be made by handing a copy to the individual in charge of any regular place of business of the partnership or foreign partnership if the individual served is not a plaintiff in the action. If the address of the partnership's or foreign partnership's principal office cannot be determined from the records of the department, the partnership or foreign partnership may be served by publishing a class 3 notice, under ch. 985, in the community where the partnership's or foreign partnership's principal office or registered office, as most recently designated in the records of the department, is located.
