I think you should speak with your divorce lawyer, or another family law lawyer.

If you are still married and she did it, then I am not sure that its criminal in nature, though I would advise you to seek a court order preventing her from doing it again. If in fact that private investigator impersonated you and got access, it is most likely a crime. The bank may have a log of customer service calls for your account. However, I just dont think that a lawyer would do this and she may be responsible and trying to deflect blame.
I would consult with a family lawyer immediately. You can call the police, but computer crimes are difficult to solve and/or investigate for many smaller department. I'm not sure Forney PD is well equipped to combat computer crimes. This might be different, but still, with a lawyer helping you I'd expect you will some areas to litigate.
