OPINION

After a trial to a jury, the court below terminated the parental rights of Donald Frank and Christina Frank to their child, A.F. Appointed appellate counsel filed a motion for new trial and statement of points of appeal for both Donald and Christina. As to each parent, the trial court found that an appeal would be frivolous. The clerk’s record and a reporter’s record of the hearing have been filed. The Franks filed a joint brief in which they challenge the constitutionality of subsections (b) and (i) of Section 263.405 of the Texas Family Code. We hold that the appellants failed to establish a deprivation of their due process and equal protection rights. Because no substantial question is presented for review, we affirm the judgment.
