至于 can be either a preposition or a verb. When 至于 is a preposition, it precedes a second topic, which is related in a certain sense to the first topic mentioned. Let's take a look at the following sentences:
Example 1a. 至于钱的问题,我现在还不能解决。 [phr] As for the question about money, I still don't have any idea.
Example 2a. 至于我们明天去不去公园,那得看天气好不好。 [phr] As to whether we will go to the park tomorrow, that will depend on the weather.
In the sentences above, 至于 is used. And because of this, we know automatically that 钱的问题 and 我们明天去不去公园 are not the first topics in the contexts. The possible context could be:
Example 1b: 这次活动的场地我已经安排好了。至于钱的问题,我现在还不能解决。 The venue for the event has been arranged. As for the question about money, I still don't have any idea.
Example 2b. 明天早上我们决定去商场买衣服。至于我们明天去不去公园,那得看天气好不好。 [phr] We decided to go shopping for clothes in the shopping mall tomorrow morning. As to whether we will go to the park tomorrow, that will depend on the weather.
