Joseph Jaap's answer Talk to the police and file a report. The prosecutor would determine whether to bring criminal charges. If you file for divorce, the court can order her to stop using your identity and to be responsible to pay back all the debt she incurred in your name. Use the Find a Lawyer tab to retain a local divorce attorney.
Joseph Jaap's answer File a police report. They might help. Or contact your local legal aid, or sue the landlord in small claims court for wrongful eviction and the value of your things and the cost to find alternate living arrangements.
Matthew Williams' answer Most first time offenders charged with misdemeanors wind up on probation. But, it is possible to get jail time on misdemeanor offenses, and theft offenses are very damaging to a persons record (no one wants to hire a thief), and also are crimes of moral turpitude for immigration purposes, if you are not a US citizen. You should get an attorney.
Matthew Williams' answer A little more context is needed. It is foolish and you will just get rejected if you simply call up the bank and ask for someone else's information. If you use personal identifying information of another individual such as the last four digits of his or her social, name, and address, to attempt to obtain his or banking information, that would be illegal.
