Get an Anticipatory Bail: If you think your wife may file an FIR under Section 498A, hire a criminal defense lawyer and get an anticipatory bail to prevent yourself or your family member's arrest. Anticipatory bail is like a precautionary bail in case police move ahead to arrest you or your family members.
