1.File AB for your wife when she won't have to appear before the Court. She need not take surrender bail,

2. While praying for AB, mention about her pregnancy to establish that  she can not run away.

1. She should have taken AB long back,

2. At least apply for her AB now with the said  medical certificate of her advanced pregnancy.

1. For taking anticipatory bail physical presence of a party is not required.
2. However at the time of regular bail her physical presence is necessary.
3, In this condition first take anticipatory bail which would give you ample time to surrender till submission of charge sheet.

Dear Querist
For anticipatory bail petition there is no requirement of personal presence of the applicant/petitioner.

no need to worry, file anticipatory bail before session court or high court u/s 438 of Cr.P.C., she will get the same,

For getting enlarged on bail she has to be physically present.  There is no exemption to it.  However the police may be informed not to arrest in the event of they arrive at house with a warrant citing the delivery of baby as reason.

Hi sir/madam, you have to take anticipatory bail from the Session Court and after the get anticipatory bail you can seek  exemption before Magistrate court by filing an u/s 205 of Cr.Pc for personal appearance up to the delivery. After delivery to take regular bail and present the court.

1. To obtain bail it is not necessary to go to court. The lawyer alone has to appear in the court to argue in support of grant of bail.

2. Let your wife engage a lawyer who alone has to appear in the court.
