Not only the court system. There are other organizations such as churches who believe the abusers' lies and persona. Individuals are also easily duped by the abusers' "well-spoken and charismatic" ways.
The challenge is that those who allege to be abused often have underlying psychological issues that goes unexplored often.

Being "well-spoken and charismatic" does not automatically make someone an "abuser". Cogent and relevant evidence does.

A case-on-point example of an abuser, and now convicted and sentenced to deal abuser/murderer Jodi Arias demonstrates quite well how the Lundy Bankcroft and others theory of "domestic violence" fails in many situations of false allegations.

Good Luck!
