I would setup a Scheduler Contribution (https://doc.nuxeo.com/display/NXDOC/Scheduling+Periodic+Events) An associated event handler would launch an automation chain that fetches the documents, etc.

You can also use an escalation rule. This example looks like what you want to do.

But using escalation rules means that I have to trigger a workflow on the objects as far as I know. That's a bit too much overhead for changing the lifecycle state of a document when it's expiry date is reached.
