I suggest that you meet with an immigration attorney to discuss the details of your marriage so that you are all prepared in the event that there is another interview or you are required to response to a notice of intent to deny (NOID). This emphasizes the need to meet with immigration counsel because every application for an immigration benefit is not simply a matter of completing forms. The questions on the forms have all sorts of legal implications and how you present your case demonstrates whether or not you meet the requirements of complex immigration regulations.

Yes, you may have an attorney during your Stokes interview. Better yet, meet with an immigration lawyer who will explain the process in great detail.

I agree with my colleagues. It is far easier and less expensive to hire a lawyer to help you prepare documents, prepare you for I-130 interview questions (especially if you will have a Stokes interview) and go to the interview with you then hire a lawyer to refile or appeal a negative decision.
