Freddy. I finalised my 1 year marriage extension at Buriram Immi 3 weeks ago. All docs accepted first time 6 weeks before that. No probs. Below I've responded to your list, item by item, plus 1 addition.

To save time, my wife and I signed every bit of paper beforehand, even though some docs probably didn't need this. 

1 - TM7 and 4x6cm pic. The IO didn't like my handwriting on TM7, so asked my wife to fill in a new TM7. "Cannot understand husband writing either," was her comment. IO then filled in a TM7 for me, all in Thai handwriting. 5555555  1900 baht.

2 - Passport photo/info page. 2 copies.

3 - KorRor3 marriage certificate. 2 copies.

4 - Wife's Tabian Baan. 2 copies

5 - Wife ID card. 2 copies

6 - Bank letter on same day as Immi visit. Original plus 1 copy

7 - Bank passbook updated on day of Immi visit. Withdraw 100 baht from your account immediately before update.

8 - 3 x 6"x4" photos. 1)You and wife standing next to your house number outside. 2)You and wife sitting on sofa. 3)You and wife sitting on bed. A hand drawn map of directions to your house is also required. 2 copies of all photos and 2 copies of map

9 - Passport current visa or extension page and TM6 departure card. 2 copies of all.

10 - Bank passbook. 2 copies showing all activity for last 2 months.

11 - KorRor2 marriage registration doc extracted from local Amphur registry. Big Boss at Amphur will need to sign and date. Ask for 2 original copies. My wife slipped the Amphur lass 100 baht, but I'm thinking it's probably much less ?
___________________________

Yes, take all originals, just in case. I use 400k in bank method, so don't need income verification letters etc.

@smooth2

That is the same list we used, we had more documents with us as required this for just in case as it was our 1st extension.

You are correct that the KR2 is cheaper, we only pay 20 THB at the Amphur and it usually only takes 5-10 minutes to get (depending on how many people are waiting).

A little bit of trivia.

The IO told my wife that marriage extension application docs now go to Khon Kaen for approval, not Korat as previously.

Don't know if that also applies to retirement extensions.

Not that it makes any difference to us expats.

Retirement AFAIK doesn?t go anywhere, it?s a local decision.

Ours (marriage) in January was decided in Korat, so the move must be a recent change, but has the Head office for our region also moved as normally it gets send to the region head office (I believe we are Immigration region 3 ??? (Correct? @Starman )

I believe Issan is division 4.

I am surprised to hear that the head office may have moved to KK as Korat have recently moved into new offices.

Bigger and better apparently.

If you meet the requirement of 400k in Thai bank , what is the rationale for wanting to see bank book showing activity?  I?m just guessing it?s for same reason they told me ...  even with embassy affidavit they want to see money being spent here.
