Social Care in Austria

Hello People

I am a Thai National and I am seeking some advice about social care system in Austria.
A friend of mine has a Thai/Austrian Child she needs to travel to Austria with her child to divorce her estranged Austrian husband but is worried that the law in Austria will not protect her as the childs Mother. She is worried that the Austrian authorities will take away the child, as she cannot speak none of the local language she feels she could be easily displaced as a the Mother and have no Social help to a foreign speaker.
A friend of mine from UK has told me that this would not be the case in UK and she would even be entitled to residence and social benefits and a translator due to the child having dual Nationality.
If any person can give advice we would most happy.

Many Thanks

Surin
