Unlevel Door

We installed a new door on the porch. While it was level when it was first installed and closed nicely, it must have shifted when we installed wallboard around it. Now it will not lock and it appears as if the gap at the top left (the edge with the lock and handle) has widened and maybe the level of lock on the door has moved down, not allowing the lock to go into the door jam/frame. What is the easist way to right this wrong?

Rehang the door. The wall board should have went up before the door. Make sure you nail or screw where the shims are and there should be at least three on each side and two on the top.
