In Illustrator you can offset an object to expand and contract it. I want to be able to expand some type that has been converted to cures so that it can be a mask. The only way I figured I could do this is to set a stroke to the expanse I want and then to expand the stroke. The problem is the stroke is still acting as if its part of the type instead of a separate object and there is no way I can figure out how to combined the type and the stroke to make a mask object.

When you 'Convert to Curves' a text layer, the result is a group. You need to ungroup the group before you can 'Expand Stroke'.
