Really? Disrespectful much?

1. Is my husband's hesitation to accomodate her new requests detrimental to him retaining custody?
Not if he can't prove kiddo is in danger. Special events are part of parenting. Checking up to make sure they're really taking place is creepy.
2. He would like to ask that she just follow the existing order until June and readdress the issues then. Do you think this is the best course of action?
Nothing, really. She might get told by the judge to be on time from now on, but she's not hurting anyone. She's just being rude.
3. What can be done about her frequent tardiness, if anything? Is she not held accountable by the legal system?
Not in the circumstances you described, no.
4. Someone mentioned "sanctions" can be placed on her for violating the existing order. What are "sanctions," how do they work, and is this true?
If he can't prove that Mom is an imminent danger to the child, he's not getting SOLE anything.
