I suggest that you leave your computer powered off and go to the police to press charges against your ex-partner. Then follow their advice.

 

I'm assuming you live in a country where the police will help you.

I agree with Didier Stevens.

I have been hacked...What should I do?

...Banking and credit card institutions should be notified immediately of the possible security breach. You should also file a report with your local law enforcement agency which most likely will have a Cyber Unit specializing in tracking down hackers and prosecuting them. Failure to notify your financial institution and local law enforcement can result in refusal to reimburse funds lost due to fraud or similar criminal activity...

Note: ...it is strongly recommended to allow law enforcement authorities to conduct the investigation if the hacking is confirmed and you have been the vicitim of fraudulent financial transactions or stolen funds...they have the resources and expertise to identify hackers and prosecute them.

How do you know for sure it is your ex-partner and it is a case of hacking? Perhaps this is why Police sent you to ACORN.
