The article “Research on foster family in Polish legal system” covers the issue of the child’s rights  to raise in the family in a situation where its “right / interest” is being threatened in the light of Polish legislation. This right is implemented in the Polish legal system, among the others through the institution of a foster family. The author analyzes functioning of this institution both on the basis of applicable legal provisions and in practice on the research carried out in court on the court files. It presents conclusions regarding the legislator's assumptions and their implementation in judicial practice.
