They have to sue her for the money. If she has no money there is nothing they can do even if they get a judgement against her.
She is going to have to try and find work to live.
She cannot force her ex to pay for anything he is not liable. I also suspect he has told immigration that the relationship is over and she is only here because of the violence.

I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If there is nothing further
thank you for using my services.
