A mesader gittin that didn’t know the Din that they may not live in same Shechuna, is he allowed to proceed with the get?

Answer:

The question cannot be answered without further investigation.

Every rabbi/dayan can forget a halachah, in particular the halachah mentioned in the question, which does not usually reach a practical level today (our ‘neighborhoods’ are different from the ‘shechunah’ of Chazal).

Therefore, the relevant Beis Din should ensure that the person in question is well acquainted with the intricacies of the laws of Gittin, and if he knows them there’s no problem with him continuing to arrange the Get.

Best wishes.
