On the other hand, the civil society groups that advocate for human rights in the United States have indeed played their role in terms of championing for basic rights among victims of domestic violence. In spite of these campaigns, it may still take a lot of time and resources for individual cases of domestic violence to be addressed. This difficulty is perhaps attributed by two main challenges. Firstly, there are numerous cases of immigrant couples who are abused domestically. As a result, it makes it cumbersome for domestic violence courts to handle such cases promptly. Secondly, lack of willingness to file law suits among some victims of domestic violence has significantly hindered the process of curtailing the vice.
Therefore, it will take some lengthy period of time before all cases of domestic violence are addressed. Needless to say, there are cases whereby racism still plays an important part in influencing the judgments leveled against perpetrators of domestic violence.
