Assuming you are talking a standard entry door (swing type single door, not sliding or french door type), Handymen would probably charge minimum visit charge (typically $50-100) to adjust the hinges or strike or shave the edge ofthe door (if wood) a bit so the door closes correctly. Up to 50-100% more if he needs to go get new hardware for some reason - uncommon but happens.

If the entire frame needs to be adjusted, or the entire door unit taken out and put in as if new for a major frame adjustment, probably $150-200 would be more normal cost - assuming the frame itself is intact and does not need rebuilding.

So entirely reset french/sliding door units, which is a 2 man job and better done by a Door (your Search the List category) installer than an handyman in most cases, more like $300-400 probably - again assuming just a reset to accomodate for a bit of house movement or wood swelling, but no "repair" to the door unit itself. Can be hard at times to find a door company who will do resets rather than just replacements - if you can find a brand on the door then call authorized repair vendor in your area for that brand, they tend to come out to service at least the brands they sell.
