Check the hinges..........

Check the hinge screws to make sure they're tight.........first step in any door alignment

Still a problem? Eye-ball the latch to see where the bolt is missing the strike plate........maybe a small file can re-shape the hole to the "new" position.........Or the strike can be moved to a new spot........

Having trouble seeing the problem.....apply some lipstick to the bolt and force it against the strike plate to leave a mark............
