I am a Canadian citizen, and my now husband is an American citizen. 

 

In December of 2018 My American boyfriend flew to Canada and helped me pack my car as we planned for me to drive my car down for a few months and stay with him to see where our relationship would progress. We got stopped at the border and they denied me entrance as I had a car full of items. Since then, I have flown back and forth from Canada to the USA numerous times. My most recent trip, I came and after 90 days we decided to get married. I am currently still here and we are in the process of filing all the paperwork. For the question "Have you ever been denied admission to the United States?" I have selected yes however, how would I word correctly on the document regarding the incident?

Exactly as it happened. Nothing wrong with the one sentence you wrote above 


YMMV

You did the right thing by answering yes.  Just explain it as it was, you were taking "some" stuff that you needed for an extended stay  so you would not have to buy things you already owned.  I went to Canada once,  didn't have a visa or passport at the time, (1999).  Since I had a one way ticket, and a PC and other gear and stuff, I was flagged, interviewed, they looked through my stuff, and I told them I was in a new relationship and wanted to see how it would work out so I didn't know if it would be 1 month or 6 months.  They were very nice, and they got on the phone and got me a 90 day visa letter.  I had my son mail my new passport up to me, and after the 90 days, I went back to the US for an hour, then traveled back in and got another 90 day stamp.  Things have changed I suppose with immigration agents and laws, but stick to the truth, as the truth never changes its story.
