You're still a child. You can't move until you're 18 unless your emancipated, and wanting to live with another person is NOT grounds for that. So, the answer is you do not go.

At 18 you are legally an adult in Georgia. I suggest you try to work things out with your mother and make it is amicable as possible until you are of legal age to move.
