"Do you know her beforehand."

Kindly tell me if we can use this sentence to mean if one person is an old acquaintance of the other.

    "Do you know her beforehand." is in the present tense - this is impossible. Beforehand must refer to an event in the past that has already been mentioned.

    No, you can't. Apart from the problem PaulQ has highlighted, "beforehand" is not the best word for your context.
    Did you know her already?
