Benificiary denied entry to the U.S. on a tourist visa in the past

Hello, I am in the process of completing the I129F packet for my fiancé (not yet sent).  We have been together for 9 months.  I met my fiancé in while she was visiting in the U.S.. Upon her returning back home (Brazil) we decided we would continue to see one another by taking turns each travelling  to each other's home.  I first visited her in Brazil back in December 2018.  She then booked tickets to come visit me  in the U.S. in February 2019.  However, upon arrival at Los Angeles International Airport she was denied entry and her visa (tourist) was cancelled.  Obviously I was not there so details on exactly what happened are not clear, but from what my fiancé tells me the CBP officers were concerned that she would be a risk to stay permanently as she told them she was here to visit me and that she would be staying for over a month.  They had her sign a paper which they did not give her a copy of and wrote "cancelled" with a legal code on her visa before she took the next flight back to Brazil.  We've since requested the document she signed from the CBP through the Freedom of Information Act, and I've also looked up the legal code written on the visa.  The code doesn't tell me much except that it was a "voluntary withdrawal" 

 

My question(s)

Has anyone been in a similar situation?

How big of problem is this? and any advice on how it can be solved/dealt with?

 

Thank you for taking the time to read and offer any advice.
