Detached garage wiring

So my question is I have a 20 amp breaker feeding my detach garage. It comes in on 12/2 to a receptacle thatís for the garage opener then splits off to 14/2 on 2 light fixtures should I change those to 12/2 for those light fixtures because I wanted to add another receptacle.

Welcome to the forums.

If the circuit is protected at 20A using the #12 wiring...... then all connected wiring also needs to be #12.
