Hello, first time here and I’m needing some advice. The deck looks like it has shifter to the right and is sagging. The posts for the roof are separate from the posts going in the ground. The posts in the ground are not on concrete. I was hired to put in new deck posts and have them on concrete. My concern is if i jack up the deck the post to the roof will slide out. I tried adding as much details as possible. Thank you in advance.

It looks like the bottoms of the roof posts are screwed or nailed to the deck, so I wouldn't be too concerned about them slipping out. But unless your jack is very stable, there's potential for the deck to try to move away from the house. I'd take it very slowly and be prepared with bracing if I see that beginning to happen.
