drain pipe does line up w/ p-trap


I installed a new vanity top. the drain pipe from the sink is longer than the P-trap and the stopper mechanism is below the p-trap. What can I do to get this resolved.

Post a picture but from your description it sounds like the trap arm (the horizontal pipe going into the wall) is to high. If so, you will have to open the wall and lower the trap arm.
