I found out today that my ex took money out of a savings

I found out today that my ex took money out of a savings account (that I didn't know his name was on). I can track all contributions into the savings and show that none of them came from him and that all of them were made after our divorce papers had been drawn up. Some contributions into the account even occurred after the divorce was final. Can I legally do anything to him to get the money back or file charges?
