Why was https://english.stackexchange.com/q/524832 migrated from Law? An ordinary anglophone wouldn't know the legal meaning. Sven Yargs hints to it

https://english.stackexchange.com/questions/524832/what-does-extended-mIn legal documents, and elsewhere, "extended" can mean (among other things) "expanded in force or reach" or "prolonged in time."

Where it is used in legal documents (as in that particular question) it has the same meaning as if it were used in any other context.
