what do you think your wife wants ?     i don't understand that part of your post

Easy way out of marriage with no guilt.  We spent most of my money together,  that was fun but now I can't even afford an agent

If you are not already on overstay, nothing will happen. If you are already on overstay, they will probably dispatch you to the Immigration Detention Centre where you will languish until you can afford deportation to your home country (together with a ban from returning to Thailand for some length of time).

Not on overstay, it's due in a few months.  I'd love to work but I am constantly told I'm too old at 63. I have a degree in health & years teaching at tertiary level.  Too young for a pension & refuse to die in a prison

What type of input are you hoping for.

Did you arrive post March last year?

I'm guessing not. So now almost a year down the track your looking for advice. 

Forward planning 101 is recommended.

Regarding immigration, I would be surprised if any slack was given. 

I've been here quite a few years but medical costs drained me completely, I'm looking for options to rotting in an overcrowded prison where I'd be soon dead

Thats a horrible situation that i myself could have been pondering, had i not left Thailand when Covid hit.

I think your answer might differ slightly depending on which (location) immigration office you are going to.

Though, in the end i dont think any of them could do much.

 

They would probably suggest you contact your embassy for help, or get a loan from family and return back home.

 

For sure most offices would not want to get involved, so they'd say anything to get you out of their hair.

 

But having said that, id really be wary of telling them anything at all,

since you might cop one who might take note of your details and arrange a nasty surprise visit,  if/when you go into overstay.

 

Its a very bleak situation. I hope you find a ways out of it.

Good luck.

Embassy doesn't help,  no family back there or I would ask.  Just hoping there is an option someone might know of to rotting in a Thai prison

Don't go to immigration if you don't have the money!

I remember a guy who bough already his ticket back home (a few years ago). His visa expired about a week before his flight home. So he though he will go to immigration and sort this out.

The immigration kept him in a cell and gave him a ride to the airport...

I'm trying to think what would happen if I went to my local immigration office & said I could not afford to extend for another year.  I can't even afford an agent (16000),  returning to where I came from is about 130000 baht so that's out of the question. My dear wife asked recently what I will do if I don't have the money,  I guess I know what she wants.  All responses welcome,  I really need input here

"I'm trying to think what would happen if I went to my local immigration office & said I could not afford to extend for another year". 

If you weren't on overstay at the time of asking, Immigration wouldn't do anything, they'd not be interested in your future problems. 

 

If you were on an overstay they'd probably arrest you.   They certainly wouldn't be offering you any charitable options.
