The 1949 Washington Legislature made it mandatory for every County in the State of Washington to set up a Family Court of Conciliation as a branch of the Superior Court. RCW 26.12.010 et seq [Rem. Supp. 1949 § 997-30 et seq]. Pursuant to that mandate such a court has been in operation in King County since February, 1950. By decision of the Superior Court Judges, the Juvenile and Family Court Departments have been combined into a single administrative unit under the supervision of Judge William G. Long.
