dpkg problem

There is a package that is causing problems that I want to remove with dpkg. However there are dependencies that wont let me remove it. After I remove it I am just going to re-install it again so I doubt there will be any problems concerning that. But what is the command to force dpkg to remove a package? And am I correct in assuming that it is a safe thing to do?

"dpkg --help" will list off all the variables.
