SharePoint Designer Workflow: Date Field Empty / Null Check

We need to auto initiate a workflow as soon as document is uploaded based upon criteria that document has date in “Expiration Date” field. In order to check whether date field has value or not, we can use following solution as SharePoint Designer doesn’t provide any direct way to check:

But these solutions were not properly working in our case as soon as document is uploaded, workflow is triggered and we were late to full value.

Resolution:

We pause workflow for 5 minutes at first step and requested user to fill value within 5 minutes of uploading documentJ.
