  Notes:  
this is quite formal, so "preceeding" might be the best translation. Otherwise 前に (maeni) is more casual. 
(dc)
先立つ(さきだつ)is the dictionary form, as in one of the examples below. 
(dc)
*This grammar can be used as a sort of conjunction (に先立って; に先立ち), or in front of another noun (に先立つ).

    MikiTranslation for "family come before money" can be
    お金よりも、先立つ(さきだつ)のは家族だ。
     
    bamboo4#1084 - サイン会 should properly be "autographing session" not "signature session." Also "Films opening" should perhaps be "the first public release of the Film"

     
    Mikiex#4336 話し合いのもとにするために、was a bit strange. I changed from 話し合いのもと to 話し合いの糧 kate. 
    Miki#4332, #4334, #4335 先立つ in these examples means somebody dies earlier than his parents or spouse. 
    rubyhatchetSo Miki, in the case of #4435, should it be better to say, "She was preceeded by her only son."? Sounds like it matches the idea of 先立つ pretty well.
