In re Derrick S., A116871

Order made at the six-month review when the juvenile court denied dependent his motion that his mother not receive additional months of reunification services is reversed as no statute or rule of court restricts a juvenile court's discretion to order less than the maximum amount of reunification services when confronted with a parent who is unwilling or unable to benefit from additional reunification services, or if for other reasons the likelihood of reunifying the family is faint.
