We provide the Expiration date in the fundamental message of level 1 data.

Take a look at the documentation page for fundamental data fields here:

This helps me. Thanks.

Is there a way to get the expiration date of old contracts?

Unfortunately not directly. You could do a daily history request for each and get the last day that the contract traded/settled though and that may work for you.
