You are advice to file anticipatory bail in the High court if you are relative of the informant then bail shall be allowed in favour of you . You get the photo copy of FIR from the court to file bail .

Anticipatory bail is not a right of accused. It is a judicial discretion.
So far allegations of dowry or other matrimonial offences there is guidelines of Supreme Court wherein police shall go for due inquiry by giving opportunity to other side and if on its inquiry police will satisfy itself that there are chances of absconding, tampering evidence, terrorizing witnesses or committing similar type of offence during pendency of trial than only take the accused to custody.
Moreover because of Sec. 41 Cr. P. C. Police itself is empowered to release the accused without sending him to jail.
So to me thinking of anticipatory bail in instant case is not necessary.

Time issue is there for sure. It's not like filing the case and getting the bail order immediately. It will most probably take minimum 25 days in the case. Therefore, if you are prepared for filing anticipatory bail, hurry up, appoint an advocate. Till you don't get the order from the High Court, abscond/ hide yourself from the police. Make sure the police don't arrest you orelse your anticipatory bail case will be dismissed.
