Harassment over the Internet is certainly now illegal. But bullying in your relationship would need to be dealt with by way of a protection order, although I am not sure whether you are living together still. If you are, a protection order would have the effect of evicting her from your home. I would normally suggest some family counselling but I am not sure whether this is what you are after with this question.
