fight case on merits . police will conduct investigations and if prima facie case is made out file charge sheet  against you and other family members . you can move high court for quashing the complaint filed under 498A  based on legal advise

Seek anticipatory bail and then contest the case on merit.  The FIR can be quashed if it is abuse of process of law.  You should have strong case to go to HC for quashing.

Obtain bail and contest the case on merits in court. If there is insurmountable evidence of the falsity of case then move HC for quashing it to abate the process of criminal law.
