3.

If the adverse party responds to the notice pursuant to subsection 2, the law enforcement agency must obtain the necessary information from the adverse party to serve the adverse party personally with the temporary order.

If after due diligence, the law enforcement agency has attempted and been unable to serve the adverse party with personal service of the temporary order three times and the adverse party has not responded to the notices pursuant to subsection 2, the applicant may petition the court to order the law enforcement agency to serve the adverse party with the temporary order at his or her place of employment, if applicable. The petition must include, without limitation, affidavits, declarations or other evidence setting forth specific facts demonstrating:
