You should discuss the matter with both of your parents and ask that things be changed, but, eventually, you have a lot of practical power, in that, if you go where you want, it is unlikely that, given your age, the Court will force you back to the other parent, unless there are other important matters that I do not know. Good luck, but try dealing with it first.
